Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Bike New York is reaching the next generation of New York City cyclists through it’s after school and summer youth programs. The program is designed so that kids have repeated and ongoing opportunities to develop their cycling skills and go for rides.   You'll also hear about some of the major challenges of implementing the program along with Bike New York's experiments with other program models. 

The Specialized Foundation uses cycling as a tool for children to achieve academic, health and social success. Through investments in primary scientific medical research and school-based cycling programs, their mission is to increase accessibility to cycling to aid youth in personal development and education.  Their "Riding for Focus (R4F)" program is designed to provide middle schools with everything they need to create a lasting, sustainable cycling program and to get their students riding.
