A teacher at Langley Middle School made a great video showing their bike safety education program in action. The video includes practicing bike handling skills, learning about navigating intersections, and going on a road ride.
South Whidbey School District joined the Bike and Pedestrian Safety Education program in 2011. Washington Bikes and Feet First trained their teachers in the 8-lesson curriculum, and the program has been rolling ever since. Each year they teach their middle school students how to ride a bike and important pedestrian safety skills. The teachers here have also added elements to the curriculum to cover group riding skills and a road ride to a neighborhood park.
