I discovered this great short video of a bike bus project in Vienna, VA. If you are not familiar with the concept, a bike bus works like a real bus with “stops” along the way to pick up riders. Essentially, a leader starts the ride and brings riders into the group at predetermined times and locations. It offers a safe group for those nervous about biking on the roads with experienced transportation cyclists answering questions and providing support. It has been used in other communities to not only help children but also adults new to bike commuting. I thought about doing this for my child’s school last year for Walk to School Day, but ran out of time to pull it together. Now I’m inspired to try again.
