About the Youth BEST Program

The Youth Bicycle Education and Safety Training (BEST) Program teaches more than 3,000 Utah kids every year how to safely and confidently experience their communities by bicycle. The Program is a 5-hour, in-class and on-bike program taught at schools around Utah, targeting students in the 4th to 7th grades. Bike Utah provides trained instructors, bicycles, helmets, and all other equipment for the duration of the program at no cost.

Students learn:

  • The benefits of riding a bicycle

  • Rules of the road

  • Helmet fitting

  • Bicycle safety checks

  • Navigating intersections

  • Right of way

  • Avoiding hazards

The program can be administered at schools in all corners of Utah, and, with your help, the goal is to reach students in each Utah county!
