Back to School
Summer is quickly coming to an end and it is time to think about school starting up again. We are absolutely sure the best way to travel to and from school is by bike! If you haven't tried it, we encourage you to skip those long car lines and take to riding. The bucket easily holds all the backpacks, projects, lunches, pets and kiddos in tow.

- Merritt and Rob Braun, Spring Lake NJ: Bucket bike adventuring with their 3 boys (and another coming soon!) since summer of 2020. Merritt's message to the community is: "Smile with the risin sun."
- Jenni Pullium, Ann Arbor MI: Homeschooling mom to 4, Jenni's crew just settled in their new home. Always up for adventure, they recently bucket-biked through Washington DC with their family of 6 and 2 pups. Jenni's message to the community: "If there is a reasonable way to take the adventure DO it! There will always be things in the way! So just do it anyway! Being a mama of 4 littles, adventures seem daunting but kids will roll with the punches and they will always remember the good!"
- Maddy Zanetti, Saratoga Springs NY: Maddy is a multiple business owner, lover of dogs, mom, and bucket bike duo with her sister. Her message is: "Keep moving, that’s one of the things I love about being able to bike, it keeps you healthier and happier."
- Lindsey Morris, Pensacola FL: Lindsey is mama to 4 and married to awesome dad and professional football star Alfred Morris. Her message to the community is: "to anyone who is wondering if this bike is “worth it”: these years with littles can feel hard because so many activities can be challenging with small kids - BUT getting outside in the sunshine and being able to bike FOUR kids to the park, or to the store or just around your neighborhood is one of the best investments you could make! This bike = more freedom and memories!"
