Kids on Bikes

The Capital City Cyclists Kids on Bikes program provides educational opportunities for kids to learn cycling skills, bike safety concepts and awareness of how biking positively impacts their health, environment and lifestyle. If you have any questions about the Kids on Bikes Program please contact Hans van Tol (hans@cccyclists.org)
 
Currently Kids on Bikes has 3 components:

 Teaching Bike Safety in Local Elementary Schools

We provide bikes, helmets and interns to assist teachers in teaching the Florida Traffic Safety and Bicycle Education Program (FTBSEP). To date the Program has helped teach bike safety to more than 4000 children in Leon County.

We currently work with teachers in 14 Leon County Elementary Schools.  We have a trailer with enough bikes, helmets and equipment for a class of 30 children.  Each month the trailer is moved to a new school so they can teach the FTBSEP curriculum as part of their regular PE classes.  The curriculum last for one month, at the end of which the kids go on a supervised bike ride together.
