Progressive AFT Partners with All Kids Bike
Dirt trackers will be in attendance when Daytona Beach’s Palm Terrace Elementary takes shipment of its fleet of bikes, pedal-conversion kits, helmets and curriculum for its All Kids Bike Kindergarten Learn-to-Ride Program.
Daytona Beach, FL (March 6, 2023) – Progressive American Flat Track is excited to announce it has partnered with All Kids Bike to support its national movement to place Kindergarten PE Learn-To-Ride Programs into public schools.
Launched in 2018, All Kids Bike has already supported more than 800 schools across all 50 states, providing thousands of children the opportunity to experience the joy of two wheels via an inclusive, proven Learn-To-Ride curriculum.
Stars of Progressive American Flat Track will help spread the excitement just prior to this season’s highly anticipated opener, as a number of the world’s elite motorcycle dirt trackers will be in attendance when Daytona Beach, Florida’s Palm Terrace Elementary takes shipment of its own All Kids Bike Kindergarten Learn-to-Ride Program—which includes a 24-fleet of bikes, pedal conversion kits, helmets, and curriculum training—on Tuesday, March 7.
The series’ fans will also be given the opportunity to donate to the cause, both online when buying tickets for any 2023 round, and in person while attending a race this season.
“Fans of the sport are obviously very familiar with the sense of freedom, excitement, and confidence that comes with learning to ride,” said Gene Crouch, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “It’s deeply gratifying to be able to help introduce the younger generation to those same experiences.”
“From the beginning of our existence, we felt learning to ride a bike should be an instrumental foundation that all kids deserve,” said Lisa Weyer, Executive Director of All Kids Bike. “It is our hope that by teaching kids how to ride a bike in Kindergarten PE class, we are leaving a legacy for the next generation of riders on two wheels. We’re excited to partner with Progressive American Flat Track and make an impact far beyond race weekend.”
The 2023 Progressive American Flat Track season will launch with the hugely anticipated return of the Daytona Short Track I & II at Daytona International Speedway on March 9 and 10.
