Here is a sample schedule to get an idea of what kids will experience at Summer Bike Camp:
Day 1: Orientation to Bikes, 0S3 Movement, Basic Bicycle Mechanics & Bike Safety. Participants learn about simple bike maintenance, bike sizing and fit, how to fit and wear a helmet and socialized with other youth.
Day 2: Safety and Accident Prevention. Participants learn the steps for entering the roadway without accident. They will learn to look back and forth for passing traffic and go when it’s clear. Day 2 special guest: Amador Vazquez, Public Safety Officer from the Nogales Police Department.
Day 3: Inspection of Intersections and Road Signs. Participants learn to pull up to a stop sign, wait for pedestrians, then stop far enough out to see beyond any obstacles, position their pedals for a powerful take-off and go when there’s no conflicting traffic. Day 3 special guest: Sonia Sanchez from Team ADICT
Day 4: See and Be Seen. Participants learn to turn their heads to see what’s behind them without swerving their bike more than one foot to either side and without falling. Day 4 special guest: Mariposa Nutrition and Health
Day 5: Road Risks. Participants learn to dodge their front wheels around a “rock” at the last moment without veering more than one foot to either side and without falling. They also learn to go between two objects without hitting either. Day 5 special guest: Santos Yescas from Nogales Community Development.
