BikeWalkKC Programs and Activities
Our BLAST program (Bike Lesson and Safety Training) teaches 5th graders the skills they need to bike safely and confidently to school or around their neighborhood. Since 2012 BLAST has served more than 5,000 kids at dozens of schools in the KCPS and Hickman Mills districts. Learn more.
Safe Routes to School
BikeWalkKC provides technical assistance and programs to schools and school districts to help them get more kids walking and biking to school. Learn more.
Our Kansas City BCycle program has stations all over the KC Metro, including the River Market, downtown, Westport, the Plaza, UMKC, Brookside, and Waldo. Since 2012 BCycle users have offset more than 100,000 pounds of carbon and burned more than 7.5 million calories.
Current Campaigns and Advocacy Issues
Downtown/Midtown Bike Lane Delays
BikeWalkKC is monitoring several big bike lane projects that have been delayed for years, including the City's first parking-protected bike lanes on Armour. Additional lanes are scheduled along Benton and the Paseo this year. We continue to meet with city leaders to press for continued progress. Check the KCMO Bike KC page for updates.
Broadway Bridge Replacement
Local and state officials are debating what to do about the crumbling bridge. A new replacement bridge is the best way to improve bike/ped safety and someday remove the north leg of the downtown loop. Learn more about the issue and BikeWalkKC's position.
