|Chapter 5||Education: Education is a key component to achieving the Bike 2015 Plan's goals to increase the number of trips by bicycle and improve the safety of the bicycling environment. Many people think that bicycling in Chicago is dangerous. This concern keeps people from bicycling more, or at all. A key way to address this concern is through education, particularly through the six objectives identified in this chapter.|
|Objective 2||Deliver bicycle education programs and campaigns to target audiences.|
Continue hiring graduates of the After School Matters bicycle program to teach bicycle safety at Chicago Park District summer camps.
Ten After School Matters graduates worked in 2005 as Junior Bicycling Ambassadors, teaching 10,000 children at 117 Chicago Park District summer camps about bicycle safety.
|Peformance Measure||Hire 15-25 graduates of the After School Matters bicycle program per summer, beginning in 2006. Provide bicycle safety education at one 150 Chicago Park District summer camps in 2006 (60 percent of the camps) so that 18,000 children learn bicycle safety skills. Increase to every Chicago Park District summer camp by 2008, so that 30,000 children learn bicycle safety skills.|
