Bikes in Schools

Bikes in Schools provides safe, accessible and replicable cycling environments for primary school children throughout New Zealand. Bikes in Schools is making a demonstrable and cost effective impact on health and education performance.

Set up in 2010, Bikes in Schools have provided a complete cycling package in more than 25 schools across New Zealand so far. The package includes a fleet of new bikes, helmets, bike tracks, bike storage and bike training within the school grounds.

The aim is to encourage children to become more active and healthy, help them develop various bike skills, build their self-esteem and confidence, all while in a safe and familiar environment. Bikes in Schools have produced a short video to demonstrate how the programme works.
