Better yet is the growing number of bike trains, kids and parents on bikes riding to school, all together. Wouldn't you love to ride with these cool kids?
The bike train to Bryant this morning even had a police escort. I love this!

Chris rode with his daughter in this Bryant Gran Fondo and declared it "scarier than the sketchiest Cat 5 peloton" he has ever ridden in, but that's just because he wasn't wearing a pink princess backpack and one training wheel.
It turned out that I had just enough daylight left after work to bike to Discovery Park on the way home for a jog/walk on the trails, drinking in the cool peaceful green gorgeousity of a forest evening. How lucky am I to have this park, with the birds and snakes and fragrant flowers and sunlight slanting low through the trees, on my way home! After my loop, I changed back into biking shoes and flew down the long hill as fast as I could, scooted through the locks just as the gates were being closed, and rode up the long hill in the dark to home and shower and dinner and delicious sleep.
