Rapid City Area Schools Superintendent, SD

“This is an exciting new venture for our staff and students and we are grateful and proud that Rapid City Area Schools is the first district to launch the initiative. Numerous studies show that riding a bike not only improves physical fitness, it also benefits student learning, development and mental health. Black Hills Harley-Davidson’s generous donation of 375 Strider Bikes will give every kindergartner in our district an opportunity to experience the lifelong benefits of knowing how to ride a bike.”
