Sunny day, indeed! Rich Conroy, our Director of Education, and Zoë Cheswick, our Education Operations Director, headed down to Sesame Street recently to teach a couple of fuzzy folks named Murray Monster and Ovejita—as well as some of their friends—how to ride bikes. Here’s what happened.


Surely if it makes sense for children to be taught how to ride a bike, how much more so does that apply to adults? Many of them have not ridden a bike since childhood. And what little they knew them, they have forgotten. Yet we are willing to turn them loose on bike lanes without any real knowledge about the simplest of things regarding a bicycle.

How arrogant can a movement get?
