    This 15 lesson curriculum serves as the critical “Education Component” of a well-rounded Safe Routes to School Program. The lessons focus on rules of the road, safe cycling skills, strength building and stretching using fun physical exercises that are at least 15 minutes in length (as recommended by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education’s Physical Activity Guidelines). These activities aid physical education teachers and coaches in integrating bicycle safety education into their own state’s Physical Education objectives. 


     The BikeTexas Safecyclist Trainings where available through 2013 thanks to support from SafeRoutes Texas (Texas Department of Transportation).

    Due to popular demand several teacher master pages have been made available to the public in pdf format.
