Middle School Students Ride to School - Encouraging!
I observed a nearly full bike rack at my son's middle school. My son confirms it's a common occurrence and not just because May is Bike Month. For whatever reason, a greater percentage of students ride to the nearby elementary school. Attendance at the middle school racks has, fortunately, escalated - a far cry from the embarrassingly low numbers only three years ago.
Either preteens finally discovered riding equals freedom or having a bike is "cool" again. What novel ideas!
