Grade 1 student Cedar (back seat) got a special pick-up from school Fri. May 14th. His parents Justen and Gwen and sister Hazel cruised in on a 4-person bike rented from Valemount District Bicycle Co. Gwen said it was tons of fun—and work, since the kids were too short to help. They relied on the help of friends who would hop on for a stint of pedalling to help them get to their destinations. As for the popsicles: “They just seemed fitting to add to the tour,” Gwen said. But they also ended up being payments. “We gave a popsicle to anyone who helped us pedal.” District Bicycle Co says they plan to have several 4-person bikes for rent on an ongoing basis and are currently charging $25/hour. /PHOTO DEBBIE IORNS
