Our Bicycle Skills Challenge is a youth skills clinic where participants learn basic riding and safety skills. The Bicycle Skills Challenge program teaches students helmet fitting, ABCD quick check, bike control, obstacle avoidance, starting, stopping, and hand and verbal signals. Instructors teach safety skills in a way that students understand the importance and use of each hand or verbal signal, and then are able to practice the skills they learned.
We run Bicycle Skills Challenges as part of physical education classes for 3rd through 5th grade students in Austin Independent School District (AISD) elementary schools during the school year as well as during special weekend events or summer youth programs. The program is 45-minutes long and we provide the bicycle fleet, helmets, materials, and instructors so that everyone can participate.
