Thankfully, my job is wonderful and I've been spending the last week teaching 5th graders in Folsom about safely riding their bikes for transportation. The city of Folsom, along with many others, especially including the 50 Corridor TMA, have funded a new Bike Smart program, modeled after the NNTMA's Project Ride Smart. The school's principal and staff have been incredibly welcoming and supportive, giving us almost free run of a 10-hour long bicycle education program over the next two weeks. Today was a video day where we discussed intersections, right of way rules, and lane positioning. These kids will probably know more than their parents at this rate!
On the way down to the light rail station, I was able to finally test out my new Georgia In Dublin rain skirt. Way easier and more breathable than classic rain pants. Unfortunately, the bike I am on doesn't have fenders so the open back was a little more drafty than I'd like. Overall, I still really like this set up.
Now, I'm currently stuck on a light rail train as a truck driver has managed to get themselves stuck on the tracks, blocking our way. There's no estimate for departure, yet.
Thankfully, the rain is beautiful, the students have been awesome, and it's Friday! Can't complain too much.
