Training & Certification: Training and certification on our online platform include an overview, videos, and quizzes about our Learn-To-Ride curriculum so educators are well-prepared and fully-equipped to teach the program successfully. This training is available to an unlimited number of educators for each school.
Curriculum: Designed to be taught in 8 integrative lessons, the curriculum begins with the simple goal of teaching a child how to move, balance, and stop while on a two-wheeled balance bike. Midway through the curriculum, the bikes are converted from balance-mode to pedal-mode with the goal of each student pedaling a bike independently. This progressive-based approach aligns with SHAPE America National Physical Education Standards so it can seamlessly be integrated to the educator’s year-long physical education programming.
Bikes: The program includes 22 Strider 14x Balance Bikes. The one-of-a-kind hybrid design of the Strider 14x Bike enables children to first develop balance before introducing the pedal conversion kit and pedaling motion.
Pedal Conversion Kits: The program includes 22 Easy-Ride Pedal Conversion Kits which can be attached to the Strider Balance Bikes after students become proficient at balancing and are ready to learn the pedaling process.
Helmets: The program includes 22 fully adjustable helmets. The curriculum instructs children on the proper fit of a helmet and reinforces in every lesson the importance of wearing a helmet whenever they ride a bike.
Support: To ensure the success of the Kindergarten PE Program, the Strider Education Foundation provides a five-year support plan to each school so educators can access training and certification, in addition to other inquiries or bike fulfillment needs.
