The success of a school bike club is parent and volunteer involvement, creating a model of physical fitness activity for youths, families, and communities. Engaging youths early on to physical activities as part of a healthy lifestyle reduces later onset illnesses such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, etc.
