Thanks to Bevin Campbell who organized this fantastic day at Mountain Sage Community School in Fort Collins. Mountain Sage is a charter school, so children don’t necessarily live nearby. To make it work, Bevin staged 6 ‘stations’ in different locations throughout the city where parents could drop off their children with a parent/bike train leader. We led the train from mid-town.

Once everyone converged at school, we paraded around the parking lot for a few minutes. Lots of smiles and happy kids.

Bike parking is limited today!

On the way home from school, Clara said “This was the best day ever!”. She’s right. Maybe next year we can do convergent bike trains once a week!
