The Friday commute to school looks a little different for some kids in Barcelona, Spain.
Starting at 8 a.m., more than a hundred kids and parents hop on their bikes and hit the road on their way to school and work. Not on the sidewalk or in a bike lane, but in the middle of the street.
Dozens of children ride bikes and scooters — and even skate — down empty streets, seen in videos and photos posted to social media.
The system has been dubbed bicibús, or bike bus, and began in the Eixample district of Barcelona in September.
Families in the area are using the growing popularity of the bike commute to build community — and also fight for a safer, more environmentally friendly way for their kids to get to school.
