Bike ED is a comprehensive, hands-on program that started in 2010 in the Fayetteville Public Schools to teach 3rd through 5th grade students how to drive a bicycle responsibly.
Spring 2013 will see the program travel at Holcomb, Owl Creek, Washington and Happy Hollow Elementary schools.
You can make a difference by volunteering for a Bike ED class. No prior bicycling experience required. For latest information, contact
