Gaenslen builds great relationships with students and families to ensure good support and strong communication.Learning to ride a bike is a critical skill for children. Children of all abilities gain physical strength, improved cardiovascular health, and a new ability to explore and interact with the world around them. Children with special needs, in particular, benefit from an increased range of motion and better trunk control--skills that can provide a better overall quality of life by making it easier for children to bathe, dress themselves, and participate in school and home activities. - Ann Terrll, MPS Foundation Director All Kids Bike® is a national movement led by the Strider® Education Foundation to place Kindergarten PE Learn-To-Ride Programs into public schools for free, using donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations.
