A Little About the BikeEd Program…
The BikeEd Program started in 1989 and our instructors have taught over a hundred thousand fourth graders on Oahu how to ride bicycles safely! The program is normally one week long and runs from Monday to Friday between the hours of 8:00am to 2:00pm. Instruction follows a set curriculum and includes a safety presentation, on-bicycle instruction on-campus, and two days of on-road instruction. The course goes over basic bicycle safety, how to perform a six-point bicycle safety check, bicycle control, how to properly leave a driveway, and how to make right, left, and U turns. Bicycles, helmets, and safety vests are provided.
For safety purposes, students are required to wear sneakers while cycling. Unfortunately, over the years, we have found that many students across Oahu don’t own shoes due to lack of family resources.
We’re collecting kicks to lend to keiki during the BikeEd week so they don’t miss out on the FUN and EDUCATIONAL week!
