in Ann Arbor
Visiting my son in Ann Arbor, he is grad student here. Unlike WC, we have sun and high 60s. So that is nice. Was out in the car and noticed kids biking home from school. Since this is a contained town with lots of sidewalks and such, kids can walk and bike to school. Nice to see and it is a shame more kids cannot do this.
Seems wrong, kids ride buses home from school and then get into cars and go to soccer practice. Would be better if their exercise could occur as part of their day and therefore, become a life time habit. I biked to school or walked my entire school career. Maybe that is why I am biking now.
Get your kids on bikes, and make habits of sports that kids can actually do as adults.
