Build It and They Will Ride (& Need to Park)

My neighborhood K-8 school (Lake Harriet Community School) here in Minneapolis added bike racks over the summer. I was blown away the other morning when I rode my daughter into school and saw over a hundred bikes in the racks. The school is already due more bike racks. Wow.

I shouldn't be so surprised as one of the teachers in the school is Mr. Carlson and he has been doing a fall and spring bike club for several years. How cool is that? Way to go Lake Harriet (and Mr Carlson).

    That is so awesome. We help with the bike to school program at our school in Seattle, but don't get anywhere near that turnout unless it's a special even (like bike to school/work day). I think you are right about teacher involvement. They have more power than anyone realizes to get kids on their bikes (and if the kids _want_ to ride, maybe parents will let them and we'll see few cars on the road and fewer fat kids in cars. Win-win!).
