Mission Statement

To empower school age children and their parents through education and training to safely and responsibly bike, walk, skate and scoot to and from school.

Description

Our Vision: To create a community environment where children and parents alike are comfortable using alternative modes of transportation, whenever they choose.

Walk 'n Rollers was established to bridge the gap between cities that are improving their bicycle infrastructure and the user groups within those communities. We are a Project of LACBC, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

We aim to educate, train and encourage people of all ages to ride their bikes more often. By building confidence, we can create a healthier, more sustainable community.

The evidence is overwhelming. If more kids ride or walk to school, congestion around schools decreases, safety increases and kids get healthier. Healthier kids mean more engaged students and better grades. But the children are only part of the solution. Parents, administrators and community members must be involved as well. By including all of these stakeholders, the programs have a better chance at success.

When children learn how to safely and responsibly walk and bike to school, they also learn life lessons that not only help them be better members of the community, but better stewards of the future.

Let us help you make your community a safer, healthier more livable community!
