Pillsbury Pedal Power
Ever wondered what would happen if we made bicycling an official part of the school day? This year, Pillsbury Elementary, a Minneapolis school, added biking to their fourth grade curriculum. The program focuses on kids learning through activity and adventure. Underpinning this idea are the convictions that communities can offer a wealth of bike-accessible resources, and that becoming a safe urban biker empowers kids and builds connections to their communities.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Pillsbury Pedal Power isn’t all about biking; students study local science, history, and art, then bike to these locations for a hands-on learning experience.
