Bike Trains are a useful way to build a culture around bicycling at a school. In 2011, Portland had a network of over 22 elementary school bike trains. We are working to rebuild that network so that biking to school is accessbile to more students. Most bike trains run once a week with a “conductor” who helps encourage other families to join. They have advertised meet up points and times along the route so others can join.
