We are excited to get bikes in schools across Jefferson County, MO! Bicycles in PE class has been proven to increase engagement in students, fight childhood obesity, and many more lifelong skills.

 

With the help of Express Mart, we recently raised $30,000 in our community Express Mart locations! With this fundraising, we will be equipping 6 local schools with their fleet of Strider's, as well as the curriculum included in the All Kids Bike program.

The All Kids Bike panel, “The Physiology of Early Childhood Biking” discusses the physical development of toddlers and kindergarteners, including balance and muscle strength. It also examines how exercise improves children’s health, including cardiovascular, motor skills, coordination, weight management, skeletal development, and the immune system.
