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.


  1. interesting solutions!! can you buy them (do you know if it's possible through internet?) or are they self made? nice blog!
    all the best!

  2. bike trailers with additions for kid travel are available through some bike stores and online; could also get them custom made. search: bike trailer, kids on bikes, etc.

  3. This is short and sweet write-up.It is so nice to steal time for our kids and ride with them on bycycles in the cool strrets.Good
