Beginning Commuters

Was riding past an elementary school on Tuesday morning and was pleased to see so many kids bikes parked in the bike stands out front.  Seems like in recent years many parents will drive their kids to school even though they are within easy riding distance.  When we were kids growing-up a majority of us rode bikes to school, the store, friend's houses.  Does anyone remember riding to or from football practice with your face mask hung on the bars?

Many of us even rode to school through Jr. High, just to be able to leave at the last possible moment and make it on time.  Don't see that much any more - that is what made the bikes out front of the school so encouraging.  Perhaps the tide is turning.
