Biking at the Playground

It's Bike to Work week and we took part by organizing fun events at our school playground.
The families started by decorating their bikes with balloons, ribbons, and license plates.
Or they washed their bikes.  I noticed most of the children washed only the wheels.
Then they were ready to ride the figure 8 course.
Some of the children recognized and knew what to do at a STOP sign.  
Not everyone though.

The video shows some near misses so we started to give a bit of direction and instruction to keep traffic moving safely.

The most popular part was riding through the bike 'wash'.
Around and around they went.
