On the Way to Work...

I saw the coolest thing this morning on the way to riding their bikes to school. When I was growing up, I rode my bike everywhere (and especially to school). I don't know if it is because the routes are more dangerous in Tulsa, the threats to our children are greater, or general laziness; but I just don't see kids ride to school anymore. And I feel sorry for them. But today was different. I am not sure what Lee Elementary School was trying to accomplish, but I am all for it. I saw kids of all ages and sizes riding tricycles, cruisers, BMX, and mountain bikes to school (with their parents walking/running alongside them). I also enjoyed the police escort crossing the streets, which was obviously arranged for this event. My only regret is that I didn't get a picture of this event, but I didn't want anyone to think I was doing something inappropriate.
