All Kids Bike is on a mission to teach every kindergarten student in America how to ride a bicycle during P.E. class.
The All Kids Bike Program provides a fleet of 24 bikes, pedal-conversion kits, helmets, a teacher instructional bike, and certified curriculum teacher training ‒ in short, everything that’s needed to teach kids how to progress from balancing on to riding a bike in eight lessons.
Hohokam Elementary School P.E. teacher Carmen Simpson jumped at the idea of getting the program for her school’s kindergarteners. Carmen realized she had to capitalize on the program when she learned that just two of her students knew how to ride a bike.
At Hohokam, the program aims to teach approximately 80 kindergarten students a year how to ride a bike. With the equipment’s expected lifespan of between seven and 10 years, All Kids Bike could impact as many as 800 Hohokam students over the coming decade!
All Kids Bike is a national movement led by the Strider Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2017. The All Kids Bike Learn to Ride program launched the following year and is currently running in more than 820 schools in all 50 U.S. states.
The Hohokam program was recently highlighted on Fox10. Watch the story here.
