Education for Kids

Local Motion has many incredible programs to introduce children to the joys of walking and biking, and teach them how to walk and bike safely.  From our Bike Smart/Walk Smart program, which provides a 20' trailer packed with bikes, helmets, and training materials to schools and organizations for 1-2 weeks, to Safe Routes to School, which gives children the encouragement and tools they need to choose to walk and bike to school--we've got something for everyone.
