COLUMBIA — Bikers, walkers and wheelers took advantage of a free breakfast at Flat Branch Park on Friday morning.

The breakfast offered coffee, water, fruit and waffles to conclude the 12th Annual Mayor's Challenge Bike, Walk and Wheel Week.

The other six stations included the MKT trailhead on Forum Boulevard, the Activity and Recreation Center, Lions-Stephens Park, the Garth Nature Area and Wabash Station.

Flat Branch Park provided fruit from Sonic Drive-In, water from Focus on Health, and coffee from Kaldi's Coffee as well as food from Sunflower Waffle Company.

Paula Vandelicht, Flat Branch Park breakfast station chair, counted at least 150 people who stopped by for the meal.

PedNet Coalition's Walking School Bus mascot “Shoester” and Anytime Fitness also made rounds to provide entertainment.

"We just want to encourage people to get out and get moving," Vandelicht said.
