What exactly is Pedaling the Planet?

Pedaling the Planet is an interactive multi-curriculum assembly program based on Lisa Primerano’s travels around the world on her folding Bike Friday bicycle.  Her premier assembly chronicles her 2,000 mile bicycle journey down the Pacific coast of the United States.  It combines physics, geography, biology, habitats and environmental science, bicycle safety, and physical fitness in one dynamic presentation.  There are many opportunities for student volunteers in the program.

Spokes, her series of hands-on classroom programs, is an excellent way to follow up on topics introduced in the assembly.  Spokes programs also allow students to see Lisa’s folding Bike Friday bike up close and personal in their classroom.
