Safe Routes at Reed School District
The Tiburon Bike Train
The Town of Tiburon launched a pilot program in 2013-14 school year to run bike trains along the old Rail Trail from downtown Belvedere/Tiburon to Bel Aire School. Adult Cycling "Conductors" and Volunteers escorted and supported students to school every Wednesday.
As a result of the Bike Train, many other volunteer trains emerged. This school year form your own Bike Train or Walking School Bus and save yourself the frustration of navigating Tiburon Blvd. Belvedere parents formed the "Orange Bike Team" and are biking regularly. For more information on how to start a Bike Train contact Kathy McLeod(former conductor) for advice.
