Bicycle training workshops held in various locations around Boston have helped low-income elementary and middle-school students learn how to ride safely and how to maintain a bicycle — part of a larger citywide effort to increase physical activity in schools. The workshops are sponsored by the Boston Public Health Commission, which is participating in the nationwide Communities Putting Prevention to Work program, funded by the Recovery Act.
