Alexandria’s William Ramsay Elementary Teaches Kids Bike-Riding in PE Class

“All Kids Bike” on Mission to Teach Life Skill to Every Child in America



ALEXANDRIA, VA – The All Kids Bike Kindergarten Learn-to-Ride Program is a 24-fleet of bikes, pedal conversion kits, helmets, one teacher instruction bike, and certified curriculum teacher training, which is everything needed to teach kids how to progress from balance to riding a bike in eight lessons at William Ramsay Elementary School.

“The ability to ride a bike develops physical and mental well-being and instills confidence which can lead to better focus in the classroom,” explained Lisa Weyer, Executive Director of the Strider Education Foundation. “Kindergarten is the perfect age to teach kids to ride a bike focusing on gross motor skills, balance, and coordination. By teaching bike riding at the entry-level in a public school system, we are providing the knowledge and a positive foundation of a lifelong skill.”  

At William Ramsay Elementary this program will teach approximately 100 kindergarten students how to ride a bike on an annual basis. With the equipment lifespan of 7-10 years, this will impact up to 1,000 kids over the next decade.
