• My son keeps asking when he can ride to school. Thanks to a redistricting plan put in place last year, the answer is when he gets to junior high. It is not because of age, but because I do not think it is appropriate to send him out on a 6 lane road posted 55 MPH reduced to 45 MPH for any distance. He takes the bus. We do ride when we can, and when the snow is gone. His bike has been out already this year.

    My daughter, on the other hand, has a nice distance and easy ride to school, and she takes the car. It is a small car though.

    What I really want to know is how the guy on the bike got past the train. That is some fine bike to do that.

  • I agree about my nephew. I don’t think he should ride on that road either. I wouldn’t recommend for many people, adults or kids, to ride on that road. And the bus is mass transit, so that’s better than sending him in his own SUV. You know, if he had one. And could drive. As for my niece…no idea about that, but perhaps the apple will roll back closer to the tree after high school.

    And yes, I wondered about that bike too. Maybe they have a bike underpass, like in your hometown. Then again, your hometown has an underpass for cars too…so, no idea about that either.
