The Specialized Foundation is dedicated to improving kids’ lives through original research and cycling programs. The Foundation will work closely with schools and their local bike shops to implement a structured cycling curriculum in their PE programs. The vision is that all schools one day may have access to cycling programs, offering a research-proven method for improving the learning environment to increase kids’ academic success through an activity they love.
The findings were profound. The study found that the cycling program led to increase in positive mood, improvements in several aspects of attention, as well as acute and longer-term benefits in cognition.
