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!


  1. I find it interesting that I don't see any bmx bikes in the rack.
    I'm always checking out the school racks here hoping to see them full like this one day.

    1. BMX bikes are not very popular around here any more. I see lots of them for sale on Craig's List.
