Our Bike Family program is a fun way for families to engage with other families while building the skills and confidence they need to bike safely together to school and in their neighborhoods.
The fall 2020 program is centered around the Atlanta Department of Transportation's first Safe Routes to school pilot campus. Tuskegee Airmen Global Academy (TAG) is one block from Cascade Avenue, a corridor in Atlanta's High Injury Network. The campus has taken bold action, simultaneously advocating for safe streets while educating students and families on safe, active transportation options. TAG participates in Shifting Gears, adopted a staggered dismissal policy that prioritizes walkers and bikers over cars, incorporates problem-based learning anchored in mobility justice - such as #RespectCascade, and is launching a K-5 Spanish curriculum - La Bicicleta.
