Kids winter biking to school video! Self-propelled, independent kids in Calgary

My son and his biking pals made the Calgary Herald newspaper in the fall of 2012 after being spotted biking to school in a snowstorm. And they have made the Calgary Herald again in March 2013 due to their cycling habit.

They bike year round, on their own, no overseeing parents. This used to be commonplace, but nowadays, parents don’t let their kids enjoy the independence that they so love and crave.

The kids were asked to present at the Safe and Smooth Symposium on March 21, 2013. I produced this video for the presentation. Check it out!
