Matt Seebaum is the Executive Director of the Strider Education Foundation, the provider for All Kids Bike. Their mission is to get every Kindergartener in the country to learn how to ride a bike in their PE class. It seems crazy, but over the past 5-10 years, far less kids are out riding their bikes than ever before. Matt and I talk about how biking for us was like our ticket to life when we were kids; it's how we got everywhere and spent most of our time. There are so many valuable skills kids can develop when they go through the process of learning how to ride a bike, and it could turn into a life-long passion for them.
All Kids Bike provides schools with a class-pack of Strider balance bikes, along with helmets, pedals if/when needed, and a curriculum to follow. The more money your/our community raises, the more schools can be provided with this amazing resource. The school I currently teach at is going through the fundraising process right now with All Kids Bike, and we are pumped to get our kids started later this year!
