This South Dakota PE teacher talks about the ease of implementation of the All Kids Bike program.

“I heard about the Strider Education program at a Physical Education Conference. The curriculum is very easy to follow, step by step. I think confidence builds each day, and they go a little bit faster, they try a few more things that are a little more risky and just learn that there’s a lot of things they can do with that bike. If I was speaking to a PE teacher that was thinking about doing Striders in their physical education class, I would tell them to go ahead and just go for it. It’s really easy to implement, it’ll be fun, it’ll light a fire under you because it’s something different and new. A new way to teach PE; I think it’s the new wave of what we should be doing with fitness and wellness, and outdoor education and that kind of stuff. It fits. It’s a good fit with what we do.”
