Mark your calendar and tell your kids that Oct 5th is International Walk & Bike to School Day. Start now! Make a plan and ride with your child to school and for the more ambitious parent, organize a "bike train". A bike train is when you select route where you ride to school and slowly pick up other kids who might not have a parent who can ride with them and by the time you have reached the school you might have as many as 20 kids riding in this train with you. Want help finding what is going on at your child's school or at least who to contact, see this. If your excuse is that it's too dangerous to ride with your child to school then maybe it's time you contacted your school district on getting a Safe Routes to Schools grant going.

This was the feature video shown by IMBA at Interbike. It's getting very redundant but Colorado is obviously the capital of all types of cycling in the USA! Learn more about the Colorado Roadless Project
