It has been wonderful to see how many of our kids are riding to Martin Elementary each day, especially since just 3 years ago only 2-3 kids would ride occasionally. Now there are around 20 kids riding each day!
While it may seem counterintuitive, a greater number of cyclists on the road increases the safety for all. This is because cars become more accustomed to riding around cyclists. However, those riding do need to be sure to ride safely. As a lifelong cyclist, and a Licensed Cycling Instructor (#4973) with the League of American Bicyclists, I encourage all parents to talk with their kids about how to ride safely and hope that the following information is useful in that regard.
