One of the goals of the State’s Safe Routes program is to reach children statewide with bicycle and pedestrian safety education. Bicycle Colorado educators are traveling around the state bringing Safe Routes to Durango, Buena Vista, Yuma, La Junta, and Steamboat Springs to train teachers and administrators to implement Safe Routes programs in their areas by teaching students, parents, and teachers safe bicycling and walking practices. Teachers leave the training with classroom toolkits, including complete lesson plans and worksheets.
Upcoming training sessions in these areas:
Yuma - Friday, March 21st, 9am-5pm Buena Vista - Friday, April 4th, 9am-5pm La Junta - Thursday, April 24th, 9am-5pm Steamboat Springs - Friday, May 2nd, 9-5
These bicycle education courses are accredited through Adams State College, providing participating teachers with continuing education credits required by the state.
