Our spring teaching team is ready to go!
Meet Brandon, Vince, Joel, Sheilagh, Sarah, Adam and Lale!
Assistant Ambassadors Sarah, Brandon, and Adam, are new this season and are having a great time with the kids. You may recognize Ambassadors Vince and Lale from last season. We are excited to have them back! You're also probably well acquainted with Joel and Sheilagh who have been teaching with the BTA for a combined 10 years.
Between now and mid-June our team of enthusiastic educators will teach bike safety education at 23 schools and reach over 1,000 students, but we can't do it with out you! There are three ways you can volunteer your time and help out with our Walk+Bike program:
Ride with Kids
Wrench on Bikes for Kids
Move Bike Fleets
We think the Walk+Bike safety education program is great, but you don't have to take our word for it! Last fall one teacher at Arleta School told us,
"A lot of these students currently ride their bikes to school, so they will be safer. They also were able to be a part of their community throughout the 2 weeks [of the Walk+Bike class]. Even students who never ride a bike again will at least have a better understanding of what bicyclists needs are when they drive later on in life. This will make them less likely to be upset towards people on bicycles and make conditions safer. Studies show that cyclists are happier in general than drivers. We want a happy and healthy community and [the Walk+Bike program] encourages that."
