Hop on the bike train!
More communities are encouraging active transportation such as walking and biking to school as a way to reverse the trend of childhood obesity. “Bike trains” offer an active, social and healthy way for children to get to school – and it’s fun, too!
Let Cascade Bicycle Club be your conductor as we link up with local experts Maya Jacobs, founder of the Thorton Creek and Wedgewood bike train; FamilyBike maven, Morgan Scherer; and Glen Bluhmann from Kirkland Greenways.
Participants will learn the basics of recruiting others, planning the route, rules and group riding skills with children. The session finishes with a ride around the neighborhood where parents role-play as children, conductors and the caboose. Bring your bike and a helmet, dress for the weather and get on board.
