It helps if you can connect with a local bike coalition, community or club in your area. They may assist with educating your group and help identify safe biking routes in town.
Girl Scouts River Valleys Bike Club is a summer healthy living program designed to build confidence in biking and inspire kids to include biking in their everyday lives. The five-week program teaches skills in bike advocacy, safety, maintenance, rules of the road, ride preparations and route planning. Each session will also include a group ride.
