All Kids Bike / Strider Program
The All Kids Bike Program places Strider 14x Bikes into PE class. This 2-in-1, balance-to-pedal conversion bike helps riders gain confidence and learn more advanced skills on a balance bike. Then, when children are ready, it easily transforms into a pedal bike with the installation of the Easy-Ride Pedal Conversion Kit.
In the Spring of 2019 BikeNWA, now Trailblazers, with support from the Walton Family Foundation worked with Springdale Public Schools to pilot the All Kids Bike Learn to Ride program in 6 schools. Building on the success and praise of the program, in 2020 we expanded to grant 30 schools across the region. In the 2021-2022 school year we were able to provide matching grants to another 24 schools this time expanding throughout the State of Arkansas.

In my 19 years of teaching physical education this program has been one of the best units I have ever taught. It's crucial to so many other aspects of movement and fitness and will serve the student for the rest of their lives. And, as I teach bike and trail education to the older grades, I see that transition as a very smooth one. The student may get more out of the opportunities later because they will already have the knowledge from such an early stage in their lives.” - Kevin Thomas Washington Elementary PE Teacher
