KINDERGARTEN PE PROGRAM

About the Kindergarten PE Program

The focus of the Strider Education Foundation is to deliver superior balance bikes and a proven Learn-To-Ride curriculum to organizations that can teach the vital skill of riding a bike. One of the programs we utilize to accomplish this is the Kindergarten PE Program. This integrative program introduces the life-changing skill of riding a bike to children across America within a structured classroom environment.

We strongly believe every child should have the opportunity to learn how to ride a bike and our Kindergarten PE Program provides equal access to help children learn this healthy and transformative life skill. Through a combination of a proven curriculum, training and certification provided by the Strider Education Foundation, 2-in-1 conversion bikes, and ongoing support, the Kindergarten PE Program provides a simple and effective solution to help create a nation where all kids can ride a bike before first grade.

The Kindergarten PE Program is available at no cost to classrooms across America thanks to the generosity of donors supporting schools and school districts through the Adopt-A-School Program.

Strider 14x Sport Bike


The Kindergarten PE Curriculum is complemented by the 2-in-1 conversion bike, the Strider 14x Sport. With a hybrid design of both balance bike and pedal bike, the Strider 14x Sport is created to enable kindergartners the opportunity to first develop balance, confidence, and coordination before introducing the pedaling motion.

The Curriculum

The Kindergarten PE Program utilizes a proven curriculum developed by Strider Sports International and is exclusively licensed to the Strider Education Foundation for use in classrooms across America.

The Strider Education Foundation Kindergarten PE Curriculum meets national SHAPE America physical education standards while providing educators with a comprehensive guide that ensures the success of each student.

Designed to be taught in eight lessons, the Curriculum begins with the simple goal of teaching a child how to move and stop while on a bike. Through a progression-based approach, each lesson builds on the previous and culminates with the child being able to demonstrate controlled pedaling and stopping.

Throughout the lessons, children learn important components of bicycling such as properly wearing a helmet, how to ride safely, and how to maintain a bike. In addition to teaching every child to ride, each lesson also educates the child as to the benefits of bicycling, which helps create a lifelong passion for riding.



A New Tool Creating New Possibilities

One of the key components that makes the Kindergarten PE Program effective is the 2-in-1, Strider 14x Sport Bike. Introduced by Strider Bikes in 2017, this hybrid balance/pedal bike is a gamechanger when it comes to teaching children to ride at an age not seen in our country. The Kindergarten PE Program utilizes a progression-based approach in teaching children to ride. Building upon a foundation of skills acquired in each lesson, students achieve milestones that guide them to the final goal of pedaling a bike independently. Notable features of the bike include:

  • Easily adjustable to fit riders of all sizes
  • Low center of gravity promotes balance
  • Converts from balance bike to pedal bike

The Kindergarten PE Curriculum and the Strider 14x Sport are dependent upon one another for the success of every child. Combining the bike with the curriculum, children across the country have the ability to experience success on two wheels like no other generation.
