Gov. Jared Polis visited Castro Elementary School in support of the All Kids Bike program. The program’s mission is to teach every child in America how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class. All Kids Bike donated Strider bikes to Castro Elementary for the current and future kindergarteners at the school.
Gov. Polis spoke to the students about bike safety, and the importance of biking both for their health and for the health of the planet. After speaking, Gov. Polis helped students put on their helmets and the students rode the bikes around the playground.
Funds for the All Kids Bike program at Castro Elementary were donated by Bicycle Colorado, City and County of Denver, Trust for Public Land and the Community Active Living Coalition within the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure.
