Basics of Bicycling Program
Is provided by the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation, free of charge. This is a hands-on unit, bicycling skills and safety courses are designed to give young students skills and knowledge in traffic-wise bicycling. Courses have been designed on the blacktop playground. For those not riding a bike yet, our volunteers will also help us run the Learn to Ride Program on the same days.VOLUNTEERS WANTED:THE BASICS OF BICYCLING, Bike Safety Unit & Learn to Ride ProgramWHO:
Any adult volunteerWHAT:
Assist your child‟s PE teacher to run the bicycle safety unitWHEN:
(May 20- June 7) during your child‟s PE time WHY:
With that many kids on bikes, I sure could use some help.
The Basics of Bicycling curriculum is new unit and is generously sponsored by the Cascade
Bicycle Club. This unit included 30 bikes and helmets, plus a basic curriculum to teach kids to, bike
safe, and bike smart. Students are encouraged and allowed to bring their own helmets. Students
may also bring/ride their own bikes as long as they are willing to share it with other students during the day.
Be sure bikes are in good working order. Students who bring their own bikes are responsible for their own bikes.
Weather permitting; the lessons will take place outside on the school grounds. If rainy or stormy
the bike unit will take place in the gym.
This program runs most successfully with a minimum of 2 volunteers per day per class; 1 to help kids
who are learning how to ride („learners‟) and 1 to assist teacher with running the bike safety
stations. More is always better and I will most likely need more volunteers from 12:45-3:30 for our younger grades.
