The new Minnesota Walk! Bike! Fun! Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Curriculum was developed by the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota through a federal Safe Routes to School grant provided by the Minnesota Department of Transportation Safe Routes to School and in collaboration with the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota.
This two-part curriculum is designed specifically for Minnesota’s schools and is structured to meet Minnesota education standards. Walk! Bike! Fun! will help children ages five to thirteen develop life-long skills through fun classroom activities and on-foot and on-bike skills practice. Students will learn traffic rules and regulations, the potential hazards to traveling, and handling skills needed to bike and walk effectively, appropriately and safely through their community.
