Walking Skills and Bike Smarts Program

Safe Routes to School Bike TrailerUsing funds from a Safe Routes to School grant, the Winston-Salem Safe Routes to School Program through the City of Winston-Salem purchased a trailer, 26 bicycles and helmets that Winston-Salem/Forsyth County elementary and middle schools could use to teach biking skills to students. Safe Routes to School Coordinator Judi Wallace developed a Bike Smarts curriculum tailored to the needs and schedule of local schools. Judi with Bicycle & Pedestrian Coordinator Matthew Burczyk trained all elementary and middle school teachers in WS/FC Schools to teach the Bike Smarts curriculum in their physical education classes, with particular focus on fourth and sixth grade students.

PE teachers were also encouraged to teach safe walking skills using the curriculum developed by the State of Maryland, which could be tailored to each grade level.
