We're moving across country in a month, so Parker will be going to a different school. His new school is just a few blocks from the house we're renting, and Parker really wants to ride his bike. My DH said, "Well, we'll see......I always rode my bike....." Ummm.......not sure I'm on board with that! First of all, we haven't actually BEEN in the neighborhood, to see how busy the roads are, what the speed limits are, how narrow the roads are, if there are sidewalks, etc. (how kid friendly they are, if that makes sense) My parents looked at the house and they were there, so we know it's a decent house, and my Dad said the street the house is on is super quiet and not busy. But I don't know the other streets, or how far it REALLY is, etc.
No matter what, I'm not sure I like the idea of a 3rd grader riding his bike to school by himself.
Am I just being paranoid?? I DO think it's a decision to make once we get there and see, but most likely, it's not a good idea.
