Vermont schools and summer programs can now borrow the Kohl's Kids Bike Smart trailer -- full of kids' bikes and all equipment and supplies needed for on-bike skills trainings -- at NO CHARGE other than a small delivery fee. The trailer includes everything you need to teach bike skills to kids in grades 3 through 8.
Kohl's Kids Bike Smart is a partnership between the Kohl's Cares program. and the Vermont Children's Hospital, with funding provided by Kohl's Department Stores. Kohl's Kids Bike Smart is powered by Local Motion, Northwest Vermont's walk-bike advocates, under contract with the Vermont Children's Hospital.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Schools and camps must have someone on staff trained in the Bike Smart On Bike curriculum in order to be eligible to request the trailer and bikes. There are no group training opportunities scheduled at this point. We will travel to schools to conduct trainings on-site.
Here is what the Kohl's Kids Bike Smart equipment loaner program includes:
We will deliver the trailer to a school and leave it there for one to two weeks (depending on trailer availability and number of kids to be trained). Our staff are available to troubleshoot and answer questions by phone throughout the program. When all trainings had been completed, we will take the trailer to the next school.
We are no longer accepting requests for the trailer for the 2015-2016 school year. If you are interested in requesting the trailer for next year, fill out the 2016-2017 Fall and Spring Kohl's Kids Bike Smart Trailer Request Form*
