SPOKES is open for 4th & 5th graders, with the primary goal of teaching students basic bicycle safety maintenance and repair. This program is a collaborative effort between the Redwood City Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department and Redwood City 2020.
Participants encounter a variety of challenges affecting their ability to cycle to school; issues ranging from economic hardship, unsafe intersections, to gang activity. Many of the families that we serve in our community are also new to this area and even this country, with limited opportunities to learn about safety rules and norms. Recognizing the need for a program that could help tackle those issues, the SPOKES Bicycle Safety and Maintenance program was developed.
2019-2020 Program information
2019-2020 SPOKES programming will be offered through our REACH After School programs at Adelante/Selby Lane, Orion/John Gill and Henry Ford schools.
Due to grant funding requirements, attendance is mandatory and participants must be present for entire class.
The SPOKES Program, in partnership with Redwood City 2020, has been awarded a grant by the San Mateo County Safe Routes to School Program to cover the majority of program costs for this upcoming school year!
The Redwood City Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department would also like to give special recognition to SIMS Metal and the Seaport Industrial Association. Their generous financial support will cover the funding gap that will enable us to provide these programs.
