Thornton Creek Elementary School Bike-Train

Thornton Creek Elementary students will soon be participating in collaborative commuting. This May, children and their parents will ride the predetermined routes to school, stopping to pick up more students along the way. These rides, while cheaper and more environmentally sustainable than driving, also build friendship, community and trust among both student and parent participants. While bike-trains may be small in scale, they address global issues such as social isolation, climate change, childhood obesity and economic instability.
