Bicycle Safety

Under a contract with VTrans, the Coalition has trained bicycle safety instructors in the BikeSmart safety curriculum. Instructors are available to go into local elementary schools, to present a 45-minute to 1-hour interactive presentation to school classes and small assemblies.

BikeSmart ties into the Vermont Frameworks for education and emphasizes safe "bicycle driving," with four core skills.

Wearing a helmet, correctly.
Dressed to ride — bright & tight clothing.
ABC Bicycle Safety Check
Basic Rules of the Road (and how to avoid mistakes kids commonly make).
