The All Kids Bike Kindergarten Learn-to-Ride Program is a 24-fleet of bikes, pedal conversion kits, helmets, one teacher instruction bike, and certified curriculum teacher training. It includes everything a class needs to teach kids how to progress from balance to riding a bike in eight lessons. The program will be offered at Chris Yung Elementary School.
Lisa Weyer, Executive Director of the Strider Education Foundation, says, “The ability to ride a bike develops physical and mental well-being and instills confidence which can lead to better focus in the classroom. Kindergarten is the perfect age to teach kids to ride a bike focusing on gross motor skills, balance, and coordination. By teaching bike riding at the entry-level in a public school system, we are providing the knowledge and a positive foundation of a lifelong skill.”
At Chris Yung Elementary School, this program will teach approximately 120 kindergarten students how to ride a bike on an annual basis. With the equipment lifespan of seven to ten years, this will impact up to 1,200 kids over the next decade.
