This workshop will present the Positive Spin toolkit, a resource developed to bring bike safety and mentorship programming to youth, based on the Positive Spin youth cycling program in Pittsburgh (Est. 2010) https://www.bikepgh.org/our-work/education/positivespin/positive-spin-toolkit/.
This hands-on workshop will present on the 4 modules crucial to Positive Spin: bike safety, civic engagement, long-distance navigation, and basic mechanics. Instead of a typical presentation format, this workshop guides the participants into developing their own short presentations, in which we will share information about the program and then all participants will practice training one another with the resources available in the toolkit. Positive Spin is a program of the bike/ped advocacy organization: Bike Pittsburgh. www.bikepgh.org
