Bike Club


How to start up the “Bike Club” at a school.


Bike Club is an after school program for youth to cycle together, building strength and bike handling skills.

Bike Club teaches elementary and secondary school children how to safely use a bike for transportation and recreation.

The mission of Bike Club is to inspire, educate, facilitate and support young people in developing transit self-determination, physical health, self-awareness, and emotional stability through informed and experiential study of vehicular cycling. Club participants see a positive change in their mental, physical, and emotional health, while having a lot of fun and making relationships with adult mentors.

Bonnie Winslow will Host this session.
Speakers include: Gary Percefull - Tulsa
Chad Watts - OKC

Cynthia Gedra (Stillwater)




Tulsa has already started this program, with 800 participants. OKC is just starting Bike Club. This session will share the hints on starting a Bike Club in your community.

  Bonnie
Winslow
 Host I’ve been involved in bicycle advocacy since attending
  my first Oklahoma Bike Summit in 2011.
I have assisted Oklahoma Bicycling Coalition with the work
  on designating Ok Route 66 as a US Bicycle Route.
In mid 2013, I became President of the Oklahoma Bicycle Coalition,
  holding that position until 2018.
This is my 5th OK Bike Summit and the fourth that I have
  assisted in planning.
My interest is in bike tourism, having ridden on multiple seven day
  tours in and out of Oklahoma.
In my previous life I worked for the Bureau of Land Management,
the National Park Service and the US Forest Service.
I still volunteer at National Park sites as a camp host.
I enjoy traveling, fillin’ in the map so to speak,
  having new experiences, and meeting new people.
I ride a recumbent bike and occasionally a mountain bike.
I have a goal of riding every rail-trail in the U.S. on my
  mountain bike or recumbent.

 Bike commuter
I have been a bike rider most of my life,
   but really started riding in groups with the Red Dirt Divas
  of Stillwater a few years ago.
I have ridden on OK Freewheel 4 times, and rode on a tour
  with my husband in northern Spain in 2016.
I ride for fun and to commute to work, serve on the
  Stillwater Bike and Pedestrian Committee,
and am excited about getting more people on bikes!
