Institutionalizing bicycle education for kids is the key to advancing bicycle ridership in the future. By exposing children to bicycling as a viable mode of transportation during their formative years, educators have an opportunity to normalize bikes as a competitive mobility option in adulthood. In partnership with the New York City Department of Education, Bike New York has begun deploying bike education programs to New York City public school students. In addition to tracking program success, panelists will discuss the structure of this program as well as strategies for overcoming some of the challenges coordinating with a public school system.
