Bike Safety Curriculum
Bike Walk Connecticut has developed a bike safety curriculum targeted to the fourth grade, piloted in South Windsor in 2010 and now part of their established curriculum. With the Capital Region Council of Governments (CRCOG), educators can learn about how to teach the basics of riding a bicycle safely and confidently to elementary grade students. The 6-hour workshop is led by League Cycling Instructors certified by the League of American Bicyclists.
The workshops are funded through the CT Department of Public Health (DPH)'s Active Transportation component of their State Physical Activity and Nutrition (SPAN) grant. A maximum of 8 workshop sessions will be awarded.
