The ability to walk and bicycle safely is an important life skill. Any program that encourages walking and bicycling should also incorporate safety education. In order for children to adopt new skills, they need supervised practice time and repeated reinforcement of the key messages. The following walking and biking resources can help.
- Bikeology Curriculum and Parent Guide (American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, National Highway Traffic Safety Association)
- Child Pedestrian Safety Curriculum (National Highway Traffic Safety Adminstration)
- Active Transportation in the Classroom (Active Transportation Alliance)
- Kentucky Safe Routes to School Curriculum (Kentucky DOT)
- Maryland Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Curriculum (Maryland Highway Safety Office)
- Safe Routes in the Classroom (Nebraska Department of Roads)
