UPDATE: He’s 14 now, finishing 8th grade. We rode today the same way I would go normally, through traffic.

Beacon St, Schenley Park
Greenfield Bridge, down Greenfield Ave
took the road (no chute!) to the jailtrail
Blvd to Stanwix to Penn to 9th st garage across from CAPA.

Totally sweet. And fast. Won’t be so fast on the way home (uphill).

Cool. How many other kids bike to CAPA?

At the schools my kids attended, I never heard of any kids regularly riding a bike to school. Which is really sad, as I rode a bike to school almost every day from 7th grade thru 12th grade (this was in CA, not PA).

Great. Make sure he has a great U Lock. Maybe he can just leave one at school so he doesn’t have to haul it around. Don’t know.

I don’t know how many kids ride to CAPA? Not too many is my guess just looking around in the garage where we lock up.

And yes, he has a uLock. In fact, I forgot the key to it when I went to pick him up on Friday. Derp.

He is really into learning how to get to his favorite places on his bike and I am more and more okay with him venturing off on his own. Right now he is still learning his way around so we ride together when he ventures beyond our neighborhood.
