Bicycling Skills for Students


iCommute Walk, Ride, and Roll to School

Encourage your students to take active transportation to and from school with a free class or event! Biking, walking, skating, skateboarding, or riding a scooter to school helps promote physical activity and healthier lifestyles for students.

The iCommute Walk, Ride, and Roll to School program is offering schools and school districts a chance to register for free classes and events that are designed to teach students skills and safety to build confidence and encourage participation.

Don’t miss out! These free classes and events are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.



“Let’s Ride” Camp

Bike Skills and Safety Course for Elementary School Students.
Getting – and keeping – kids on bikes.

The USA Cycling “Let’s Ride” Camp is a nationwide bicycle safety and basic bike skills education curriculum, taught to elementary school aged children through summer day camps, physical education classes and after school programs throughout the USA.

The Let’s Ride Camp curriculum is intended to be 1-2 hours in length and will be free for all participants. Let’s Ride Camps will be occurring across the USA, hosted by local USA Cycling licensed coaches, with a view to:

  • Teach kids how to ride their bikes safely
  • Provide a first point of contact with USA Cycling for families and future riders
  • Provide access to bikes for kids who would not otherwise have such an opportunity

Host a Let’s Ride Camp
Let us know you want to host a camp!

Our goal is to make delivering a Let’s Ride Camp as simple as possible for you – the coach.  You can deliver a camp if you have an active USAC Coach License (Level 3, 2, 1). Click here to find out more about obtaining a coach license.

USA Cycling will provide the curriculum, a list of materials needed (we will cover the cost), and all the information you need to make your camp a success. We are also working with industry partners to provide bike equipment (e.g., bikes & helmets) where necessary and appropriate.

If you are interested in hosting a Let’s Ride Camp in your local community, please email:
