Back to school for AISD means the return of after-school Bike Clubs for the students. With the help of Bicycle Sport Shop and Specialized, we at Ghisallo are able to partner with AISD Schools, Parks and Rec centers, and the Boys and Girls Club in the greater Austin area to provide over 20 weekly bicycle safety and transportation programs.

On the first day of class, we help students choose helmets and size them for bicycles. We teach them the 5 Steps for Fitting a Helmet, as well as the ABCD (Air, Brake, Chain, and Drop) Quick Check. The students at Ann Richards were so fast in knocking out all the first day topics they were able to take a short ride after re-teaching the proper way to fit a helmet to the instructors.

Step 1: Find the front of the helmet.

Step 3: Make a bear claw and tighten the helmet so it’s snug enough to not slip off your head.

Ready to roll!

Beautiful weather for a bike ride!
