Community Voice: Program Spotlight - Programs to Educate All Cyclists (PEAC)
John Waterman was a public school teacher in Battle Creek, Michigan, in 1988 when a student from the special education classroom was hit by a car while riding his bicycle at night (without a helmet) and was severely injured. This tragic event moved John to initiate a bike safety program for kids with disabilities. As important as it is to provide various types of cycling accommodations for kids with disabilities, they all mean very little unless basic training and safety is being practiced.
