Youth Bicycle and Pedestrian Education Program
For many children, walking and bicycling are the main modes of transportation to and from school. While these are excellent forms of physical activity, children can lack the ability to cross a street and ride a bicycle on city roadways/sidewalks safely. They do not recognize behaviors considered high-risk for injury, such as not looking both ways when crossing the street or not wearing a helmet.1
The Beach Cities Cycling Club (BCCC) designed a Youth Bicycle and Pedestrian Education Program that teaches children skills to be safe and confident pedestrians and cyclists. This interactive program is offered free of charge to schools and organizations. The program is modeled after the League of American Bicyclists' Smart Cycling program, that has been widely used across the United States.
