Adams 12 adds bike fleet for Safe Routes education

The Adams 12 school district recently invested in a fleet of 12 bicycles to help physical education teachers teach students how to ride bikes and bike safety.

On Jan. 23, Bicycle Colorado’s Safe Routes to School team met with about 15 district PE teachers to refresh their training.

“Teachers in Adams 12 now have the resources to set up annual bicycling/pedestrian lessons in their own classrooms,” said Jenna Berman, Bicycle Colorado education director. “Adams 12 is a model for the state. It is so dedicated to this program that it used local funds to purchase its own bike fleet.”

Bicycle Colorado and Adams 12 have worked together since 2009, reaching 18 elementary schools and more than 9,700 students.

We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to denverfoodrescue.org or dug.org to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
