Kids on Bikes Where You Live

Here’s something to be thankful for over this holiday break: Kids on
bicycles. A beautiful thing. We got so many submissions for this one,
it was truly inspiring.

Many thanks to all who contributed, including Sarah Gilbert at cafemama, rbairdpccam, baudman, Julian Davies of Totcycle, Barry Childress of Baltimore Spokes, Richard Masoner of Cyclelicious, Liam Patrick Quigley of Cyclosity, Chris Brown of Brown Cycles, Matt Uhrig at Bike Jax, Bicycles Only, and the amazing folks at ITDP.

Thanks, too, to all of you who sent in photos we didn’t use. Your kids are gorgeous and it was a joy to see them all.

If
you want to see more of the fabulous submissions we received but didn’t
have room to squeeze into the slide show, head over to see a fine
collection on Flickr. Feel free to tag more photos with "kidbikes" and "streetsblog" so that we can consider them for future shows.

Happy Thanksgiving, people. Enjoy the ride.

But according to yesterday’s column from the increasingly out-of-touch Brown, […]

Take a wild guess what they found: […]
