Youth Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Education Program
For many children, walking and bicycling are the main modes of transportation to and from school. While these are excellent forms of physical activity, children can lack the ability to cross a street and ride a bicycle safely on city roadways and sidewalks. They do not recognize behaviors considered high-risk for injury, such as not looking both ways when crossing the street or not wearing a helmet.1
The Beach Cities Cycling Club (BCCC) has designed a Youth Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Education Program that teaches participants the skills they need to be safe and confident pedestrians and bicyclists. This interactive program is offered free of charge to schools and organizations. The program is modeled after the League of American Bicyclists' Smart Cycling program that has been widely used across the United States.
