All fifth-grade students will be, or have already, completed the Albany Bike Safety Education Program during their Health class. One-quarter of the fifth-grade class completed this program during the fall and the remaining three-quarters will go through the course in the spring.

This program is an award-winning, 10-hour course in which students demonstrate that they know how to safely ride his or her bicycle on the streets of our community.  Timber Ridge School has the highest number of students who bike to school each day, making this program especially important and useful.

Program Partners: Mid-Willamette Family YMCA and Albany Parks & Recreation Department.  This program has been made possible through the generous support of the following: Greenwell Family Foundation & Mid-Valley Bicycle Club
