We are training the next generation of students to be smart, safe, and competent cyclists for commuting, health, and the joy of riding.
BLAST and Bikeology courses provide training for students in fourth through seventh grades. Expert cycling instructors using standards of the League of American Bicyclists in tandem with physical education teachers lead the courses. Bicycles and helmets are available for loan to students.
BVSD BLAST is a primer to teach riding skills to 4th-5th grade students. Core components are taught through in-class presentations and on-bicycle drills including starting & stopping, over-the-shoulder scanning, signaling, and merging.
Bikeology builds upon this foundation by offering 6th-7th grade students the opportunity to practice advanced maneuvers in controlled settings and learn group riding techniques during neighborhood rides.
