Even 30 Degree Weather Can’t Stop the Beverly Cleary Bike Train!
Safe Routes staffer, Carolina, recently rode along with an all-girl bike train headed to Beverly Cleary in NE Portland. She passed along this write up for us:
Twice a week Brock Lower wakes up early in the morning, gathers his two daughters, their bikes, and meets with their friends to lead an all-girl bike train to Beverly Cleary. Rain or shine, the group rides to school all year long. On the cold January morning that I joined them, the temperature was barely over 30 degrees. To encourage the bike train, Brock brought hot cocoa (including a topping of whip cream) to the meeting spot.
A total of 5 riders make up this weekly bike train. Brock started riding with his daughters a couple of years back and invited their friends to come along. The girls enjoy riding to school. As one student put it, she loved riding in the rain “because it left a cool print on her pants.” Brock enjoys riding with his daughters to school as it gives them some extra time to talk about their days.
