Bike Trains

Similar to walking school buses, bike trains have positive impacts on the entire community. Children get a chance to practice safe biking skills, have fun, increase socialization time with friends, and arrive at school alert and ready to learn. Volunteers have the opportunity to increase their own physical activity and become more involved in their neighborhood while allowing other parents extra time in the mornings. As people see more bike trains on the street, they begin to see bicycling as a social norm, which motivates the community to invest in infrastructure that makes bicycling safer and more accessible.
