On my commute I see two Mom's getting kids to school.....which is part of my definition of utiliyt
One has 2 little ones in a baksfiet and 2 riding their own bikes.
The other has one or two little ones in a trailer and one riding his own bike. Interestingly, I saw this mom going to the school for afternoon pickup, riding along, on hand on her handle bar and the other on her son's handlebar.....sans son...just ferrying the bike to school.
I'am seeing more kids on bikes going to school (course the weather has been nice!) but overall it seems to be on an upswing here
