Bike Trains are a fun way for parents and kids to bike to school and practice safe bike skills together along the way!
A bike train usually has 2-3 parents (a parent at each end and one in the middle if it’s long) and has designated locations where they stop to pick up participants along the way.
Make your bike train fun by creating a theme, wear matching clothing, stopping at a point out interest along the way… or just keep it simple and bike with your family.
The key is to be safe and have fun!
On May 2nd for Fill the Racks many groups will be creating bike trains and biking together to their school.
Find a bike train going to your school below…or start one yourself!
