Why Kids on Bikes ?

If NO ACTION is taken,

and the current trend continues,

the 31% of overweight/obese

children in NZ at the moment

will continue to escalate.

Our mission

Our Mission:

“To promote the health and well being of children in New Zealand specifically from target groups and encourage these children to exercise regularly and safely through the provision of bicycles, helmets and safety equipment for fun exercise as part of their daily routine”

How it works

HOW IT WORKS

The Trustees of the Kids On Bikes Charitable Trust (KOB Trustees), offer selected Intermediate Schools the opportunity to adopt this Program designed for a specific target group of Kids.

KIDS ON BIKES Charitable Trust Established 14 February 2006

How it works1

HOW IT WORKS

Having obtained endorsement from its Teachers and Board, and the permission from the kid’s parent(s), guardian(s) and/or caregiver(s), the school offers KOB’s program to the students in the target group

KIDS ON BIKES Charitable Trust Established 14 February 2006

How it works2

HOW IT WORKS

The KOB Trustees raise funds from central/

local government, corporations, businesses and

the wider community to purchase and supply

suitable new bikes and ancillary safety/

security equipment such as helmets, safety

jackets, safety lights, bike locks/ chains

to the school.

All this equipment becomes the property

of the school.

KIDS ON BIKES Charitable Trust Established 14 February 2006

How it works3

HOW IT WORKS

The School then loans the equipment to the student under a “KOB Contract”

(Its purpose is to help the child learn to be responsible for property in his/her care and to honour a contract).

HOW IT WORKS

The bike supplier, assisted by

volunteer adult KOB cyclists,

adjustsbikes and helmets etc.

to fit each selected child

How it works5

HOW IT WORKS

The NZ Police train the selected students

in Cycle Road Safety. Upon passing this

training, the child is awarded a

“Probationary Cycle License” which, after

a few weeks of riding to school is

converted into a “Full License”

How it works6

HOW IT WORKS

To raise cycling, fitness, and

nutrition awareness for all kids,

the school may choose to make the

“Program Launch” a whole day event

encouraging all kids who ride bikes

to participate.

KIDS ON BIKES Charitable Trust Established 14 February 2006

How it works7

HOW IT WORKS

The children have full use of the equipment provided they adhere to their contracts.

KIDS ON BIKES Charitable Trust Established 14 February 2006

How it works8

HOW IT WORKS

A child who has taken full advantage

of the program during his/ her two years

at intermediate school can achieve

ownership of the bike and equipment

through the accumulation of “Bike Dollars”,

which are awarded to those that fulfil

their KOB Contract commitments.

KIDS ON BIKES Charitable Trust Established 14 February 2006

How it works9

HOW IT WORKS

KOB Trustees require that each school regularly monitors the performance of kids selected for the program based on a set of benchmark criteria decided mutually between KOB Trustees and the school.

KIDS ON BIKES Charitable Trust Established 14 February 2006

www.kidsonbikes.co.nz


How it works10

HOW IT WORKS

The monitoring criteria could include:

(i) a weigh-in at the beginning of the program and regularly thereafter,

(ii) attitude in class,

(iii) any improvement in class room work, and

(iv) any improvement in out-of-class behaviour etc.

KIDS ON BIKES Charitable Trust Established 14 February 2006

How it works11

HOW IT WORKS

The selected kids would also be required to complete feedback forms at the end of the program with the schools forwarding this, together with its own monitoring results, onto KOB Trustees.

KIDS ON BIKES Charitable Trust Established 14 February 2006

How it works12

HOW IT WORKS

Using funds raised, KOB Trustees will

continue to sustain each school program

by supplying new replacement equipment

as kids complete the two year program

and achieve full ownership as a result of

“Bike Dollars” earned.

Impact

IMPACT

The KOB Program fits in well with school initiatives regarding

healthier “tuck shop” foods, equipment and programs being

provided to encourage all kids to exercise and live healthier

life styles

As Kids On Bikes grows it should help popularize cycling

for kids again, resulting in more kids getting this regular

outdoor exercise

Impact1

IMPACT

For those schools undertaking the program,

the NZ Police training helps keep all children

who ride bikes to school, safer

As more children take up cycling to/ from school

again, traffic congestion around the selected

schools should reduce
