There aren't many kids who ride to Big Brother's school. Out of 300+ students, there are only ever four bikes, at most, parked at the crappy racks in the very, very, very back of the school. Two bikes obviously come together, one is our friend's son who is in kindergarten, and another little bike occasionally shows up. We have only driven to the school once and it was a nightmare. It's close enough to bike there and back, if I ever need to get somewhere after. Big Brother gets to ride about 2-3 times per week because we're often running late or he gets picked up from school by another mom. On the days that he rides, he is always so much happier and seems to sleep better at night.
Anyway, I just wanted to show off the cool setup that our friends use to pick up their son at school. This is how they bring their younger daughter with them:
We wanted to try one of these seats with LB but he topped the weight limit too quickly. Seems to work well for them. I miss being able to have the little one up front. Seems like it was so long ago that he was in the Mini Yepp.
I wish I had more time to organize some bike education classes or a bike-pool, something to help encourage more riding to school but I haven't been able to. Hopefully I'll be able to get to that in the near future.
