Thought I'd share this...

Pass this on to other fellow cyclists!
 
Here in Mountain View, our bicycle boulevard is routed past an elementary school. The route totally makes sense from the point of view of encouraging children to ride to school, but ironically, my passage along that block is the part of my commute that makes me most nervous! The sheer volume of cars pulling in and out from the curbside and doors opening is enough to set any cyclist on edge. By comparison, going past a busy shopping center is safe.
 
When I was a kid, I couldn't wait until I was old enough to ride my bike to school. Only 4th graders and older were allowed to do so. I rode a bike to school from then until high school. I'm now a teacher, and I started riding my bike to work (school) again last year whenever I can. (Which is just about always).
