    Here in the winter snow, awesome group of children who bike together to get to school. They do it often on their own.

    This is in our city. Not saying this is the norm but it's great that they have each other for company.

    That's pretty cool - around here there have been times when kids have tried to bike to school and they've been told it's not allowed.... (which honestly I cannot understand... how is that at all legal or binding)

    I saw it more incredible as the children simply riding in snow to school. Even where I grew up when children did used to cycle to school, I was not aware of any cycling in snow.

    We rode our bikes to Jr. High any day there was not snow on the roads. I can remember rolling through lots of slush! It's nice to see that these kids are doing something that promotes independence! More power to them!
