BikeWalkKC Programs and Services
BikeWalkKC helped Lawrence start a comprehensive bicycle education program in local elementary schools. In spring of 2016, we sent our Education Team there to pilot BLAST (Bike Lesson And Safety Training) at four schools. We also implemented a “train the trainer” strategy with several PE coaches in the school district. Later that year, the Lawrence School District made BLAST a permanent part of the curriculum at all elementary schools.
Read more about our work to help bring BLAST to Lawrence, in cooperation with the school district, health department, and bicycle club.
A group of stakeholders and residents in Lawrence recently conducted a bike share feasibility study. BikeWalkKC spent time advising the steering committee and hosting Lawrence folks to tour our RideKC Bike program. While we do not plan to expand RideKC Bike to Lawrence at this time, we do cheer them on as they work towards establishing their own system in the future. Learn more about the Lawrence Bike Share Feasibility Study.
