Bring bike safety education to your school

If your school is interested in offering bike safety education through a health or physical education class, our staff can provide free "Train the Trainer" education. Staff provide training to teachers and in-class support as teachers first teach the lessons to students. Safe Routes to School staff can observe teachers in class, offer feedback, and help respond to questions that arise. Safe Routes to School offers a fleet of bikes and helmets for students to use during the program. Availability may vary as the bikes rotate between schools across Portland. 

For more information, please reach out to us at saferoutes@portlandoregon.gov

Volunteer to support bike safety education

On the final day of the bike safety course students participate in a community bike ride. We need volunteers to support teachers and students during the ride. To sign up, contact The Street Trust.
