For young people, the best way to teach traffic safety rules and bike handling skills is to get them on a bike.  But that is not always possible.  Schools or safety advocates may not have funds to purchase a fleet of bikes, or to store them, or transport them.  And as an outdoor activity, bike ed simply doesn't happen year round.  In some parts of the country the weather, or lack of daylight, prevent outdoor activities like bike riding or outdoor events such as bike rodeos.

The New York Bicycling Coalition's "Walk Safe, Bike Safe" program for elementary aged children addressess this gap.  It was developed with the support of the Capital District Transportation Committee, in Albany NY, and was implemented through the after school program of the Albany YMCA.
