Beyond partners with specific schools and other community partners to provide bike safety and skill development as part of a holistic curriculum that involves all four pillars of Beyond’s mission. Through working with low-income schools during the school day, we are getting students outdoors and moving on bikes, learning to connect with one another and their community, and understanding their nutritional needs to help their overall health and well-being.
This innovative program is currently working with Imago Dei Middle School and helped them to receive the prestigious Riding for Focus grant from Outride to have bikes permanently located at their school.
We are also partnering with Pima County Health Department’s Bicycle & Pedestrian Education Program to bring bikes to other high need and underserved communities. We added Mexicayotl Academy Elementary School with the addition of smaller bikes and now serve 4th & 5th graders
We are proud to have worked with Changemaker High School to get high school students out on bikes - some even for the first time! - and understanding their communities and their bodies from a different perspective. Thanks to the Sundt Foundation and FairWheel Bikes for helping us purchase bikes for the Changemaker HS program!
Thanks to further support from the Cactus Cycling Club in 2022-23!
