Bicycle Safety and Education Program and School Partnerships

Los Angeles Bicycle Academy’s Bicycle Education and Safety program is a comprehensive curriculum
designed to teach students to travel safely on a bicycle. Our curriculum recognizes that
classes will often be composed of students with varying skill levels. Through a combination of in-class
instruction, skill-based activities, and on-the-bicycle training, students will learn the parts of the
bicycle, proper helmet and bicycle fitting, traffic rules and regulations, potential hazards when
operating a bicycle, and handling skills needed to effectively, appropriately, and safely cycle
throughout their community and beyond.
