Maine’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Education (BPSE) program is an innovative partnership of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine (BCM) and the Maine Department of Transportation. The program provides:
1) bike and pedestrian safety instruction to children and adults via presentations and experiential riding programs, 2) management of the Maine Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program to encourage students to bike and walk to school, 3) education and information to communities about program, policy, and infrastructure options to improve walking and biking conditions, and 4) education to all roadway users about how to safely, legally and courteously share the road.
Please complete the form below to request BPSE and/or SRTS program assistance.
HELMETS: BCM runs a helmet program - when purchased in bulk (8-30 helmets) the cost is $7/helmet including s&h. Use the "Additional Information" field at the bottom of the below form to indicate if you would like additional information about purchasing helmets.
**REQUIREMENT** In hosting an instructor we ask that you provide feedback through a post-visit evaluation form, which will be emailed to you following completion of the safety education event. This feedback is an important to continuing & improving BCM's education program.
**NOTE** We depend on the availability of instructors in your area to provide you with programming and make every effort to fill all requests. NOT EVERY REQUEST CAN BE COVERED WITH AN IN-PERSON VISIT.
