Our safe routes to school program here is a joke. In fact, since it started up FEWER students ride bikes to school because their primary message is that cycling is scary and dangerous. When I pick up my granddaughter who is in kindergarten, I pass through a high school and another elementary school. The total number of students is about 1500 and on a typical day there are about 10 bikes in the racks.

My lucky granddaughters get to ride quite a bit. The pre-schooler rides 50 miles per week with me and her sister is with us for a bit under half of those miles. Fun times, but I feel bad for the other kids who trudge off into cars while looking longingly at us riding away.
