Since 2009, BVSD Bike Ed has reached more than 4,000 elementary and middle school students in 16 schools around our district with on-bike, real world bicycle training aimed to increase the rate of cycling, promote health, and cultivate life-long cyclists. Beginning fall of 2017, the program will bring bike education to four schools as part of a five-year Nature Kids grant in partnership with the City of Lafayette.Geoffrey Weathers, Program Coordinator at BVSD Bike Ed says, “The goal of BVSD Bike Ed is to encourage cycling through empowerment and fun. We are thrilled to be teamed with Pedaling Minds and Cyclists 4 Community on this fundraiser. This support ensures equity in our programming and enables us to provide equipment and a level playing field to all of our students.”“Improving bike safety in Boulder County starts with teaching kids how to ride safely on our city streets and county roads. Pedaling Minds and BVSD Bike Ed are both focused on these goals,” adds Rob Andrew, President and co-founder of Cyclists 4 Community. “Helping these groups fits right within our mission.”
