Riders and Walkers, primarily for 2nd-4th graders, is a fun and engaging 60-minute presentation addressing the benefits and basic safety issues of biking and walking. Students follow along a Chutes & Ladders-inspired game featuring famous Tucson landmarks as characters Sofia and Santiago bike and walk to school. Adapted from the in-classroom version, Riders and Walkers is part of the Safe Routes to School Tucson program and encourages families to explore their neighborhood on foot and bicycle.
After viewing Riders and Walkers, families can complete this Walking Checklist together to reinforce safe routes concepts and learn ways to make their neighborhood a better place for walking.
Riders and Walkers is made possible with support from the City of Tucson Bicycle and Pedestrian Program in partnership with Living Streets Alliance and the Environmental Education Exchange.
