top 5 things my son likes best about riding

My son Andy is a daily bicycle commuter. He is 16 and rides everyday to school. He has been doing so since kindergarden. When he went to pre-school, we rode there together on a trail-a-bike.

When I was writing an article a few years ago about kids and bicycle commuting, I asked him: “Off the top of your head - what are the five things you like best about riding your bike?” he said

(1) “Freedom.”

(2) “Getting to go fast and not having to wait for the bus.”

(3) “Not having to ask for a drive.”

(4) “Being able to go somewhere and being free to leave when I want to.”

(5) “It’s a great workout.”
