Before children gear up to ride, there are a few key concepts for instructors. This video covers the topics in the
Let's Go Biking! lesson plans, how to use the lesson videos and the supplementary materials to prepare for the skill-building activities.
The following materials are also available:
The lessons for each grade grouping include a discussion and demonstration that occurs in the classroom and hands-on skill-building activities, which occur outdoors. Some lessons include a video to complement classroom instruction.
Note: Younger children spend more time learning basic concepts and have fewer on-bicycle lessons due to their developmental level. Older children spend more time practicing skills on bicycles with increasing complexity.
Lessons should be taught in order within each grade group as the concepts in the earlier lessons provide a foundation for the later ones.
