The 31 girls took their first rides on the bikes Wednesday.

They’re all part of the Girls Inc. Eureka program. It’s an intensive five-year program that gives girls hands-on experience in the basics of engineering, science, technology and math.

“I really, really like it! It’s super-duper fun!” said another.
