About the BikeEd Program
The BikeEd Program started in 1989 and has reached over 100,000 fourth graders on Oahu. The five-day program teaches students how to ride a bicycle, basic cycling safely, and laws of the road. Our target audience is 4th grade public school students on Oahu and is open to public charter and private schools.
The program is normally one week long and runs from Monday to Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (not including school holidays). We provide 30 bicycles, 30 helmets, 30 safety vests, and skilled HBL certified BikeEd Instructors! (Minimum of 10 students in a class). We can accommodate up to 180 students per school week. Our bikes are 20″ BMX style bikes suited for children that are 3′ 6″ to 5′ tall. On-Campus Drill Area Requirements: A 150′ x 150′ area (or a full basketball court), 1 to 6, 45 min blocks of time. Our program is designed to be completed in five days and we can accommodate your school’s rotating schedule if necessary. All participants must have a parent or guardian sign a Waiver Form prior to traveling off-campus. Possession of a bike helmet is highly recommended. Advance booking is required 6 to 8 months in advance. Cancellations do occur. There is no cost for this program. BikeEd Hawaii is funded by the City & County of Honolulu Department of Transportation Services.
- Monday Classroom Presentation: The instructors will go over rules, expectations, visibility, why it’s important to wear a helmet, proper helmet fitting, the anatomy of a bicycle, and what the BikeEd week will be like everyday: SAFE & FUN
- Tuesday & Wednesday On-campus Workshop: 6-point safety check, how to ride a bicycle, bicycle handling and control drills, and proper stopping
- Thursday & Friday Off-Campus Workshop: BikeEd Instructors lead students who can ride safely on a neighborhood ride. Those still practicing can stay on campus to continue practicing. On the off campus ride, instructors cover safe driveway exits, left turns, right turns, and u-turns
