Kids Bike to School, Sometimes with Parent Pedal Power
Sometimes I like being proven wrong. A few posts back I remarked on the lack of kids-on-bikes on our NOPA streets. Then yesterday I stopped by Pacific Primary school and chatted with three parents gearing up to ride bikes home with their kids. The furthest destination: the Excelsior, a long haul that includes San Jose Avenue, Valencia, and the Wiggle. The worst blocks for this duo? the few Wiggle blocks on Fell (between Scott and Baker). Seems like a green-painted bike lane to increase safety for kids biking -- and all the rest of us -- would be just the thing.
