Making Tracks

The Making Tracks program provides safety and skills Leader training in five modes of active transportation: Cycling, Walking Safety, Skateboarding (Skate Pass), Scootering and In-line Skating. The teaching materials for Making Tracks consist of Teaching Manuals and Passports for each mode as well as an accompanying User Guide. All of the materials that you need to deliver a Making Tracks progam are included in our manuals.  However, the program is not meant to be implemented simply by downloading the Making Tracks materials. Leader training is mandatory before leading the Making Tracks program. Contact us to learn how to arrange training.
