Littleton, CO  Damon Runyon Elementary School received a complete Learn-To-Ride Program, including Strider Learn-To-Ride Bikes, helmets, and curriculum from All Kids Bike.

This program will help approximates 320 kindergarten students learn to ride over the next five years.

The Strider Bikes were delivered to the kindergarten physical education class at Damon Runyon Elementary School and will be incorporated into their curriculum during the 2022-2023 school year.

All Kids Bike is a national movement on a mission to teach every child in America how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class. Launched in 2018, 490 schools in 50 states are running the All Kids Bike Kindergarten PE Program.  Funding for this program was made possible by PEARL iZUMi.

This Kindergarten PE Program includes a proven, integrative curriculum, staff training and certification, the revolutionary, child-friendly Strider Learn-To-Ride Bikes, and helmets. The fleet of dual propulsion Strider Learn-To-Ride Bikes start as balance bikes and convert to pedal bikes. All Kids Bike also offers continued support for each school to ensure everyone involved is successful for five years.  

Damon Runyon Elementary School is eager to begin the program this year. PE Teacher, Jason Hill, who applied for the program wrote: “Runyon has had a strong “Learn to Ride” program over the last ten years. This program would increase the number of kindergarten and 1st Grade riders who participate in the program. Currently, we have a limited number of strider bikes in our fleet. The Runyon program is Kindergarten -5th grade with our 4th graders participating in a family ride (6 miles) to a local park in the spring. Many students continue the love of riding with the program and All Kids Bike would be a great addition!”
