    Bike Texas offers bike safety curriculums and educational packages. They can be purchased at a small cost and are brilliant resources to help teach children bike and road safety. I really like the package that helps you organize bicycle events and how to plan a safe bike route to your school.

    This is something that is left to parents and carers and very unlikely the role of the teacher. However, riding a bike is a useful skill and some parents may lack knowledge of how to best teach their children. Pass this article on to them as it offers some valuable advice and suggestions.

As a teacher of a lower socioeconomic school, it is so exciting to see several students get the opportunity to ride a bike for the first time. It's a way to help and motivate our students to learn the skills and safety rules that will help them live a fuller and healthier life.
