Building upon the work BFC began in 2021 in partnership with the Larimer County Department of Health and the Built Environment, where we created three initial videos in a “Let’s Ride” series showcasing the safe route to school from three mobile home parks to their respective middle schools, we’ve added three more safe route videos.
Each video was shot from a point-of-view (POV) perspective and narrated in Spanish. The intent is to not only inform students and parents by providing a safe route to school from each respective mobile home park community, but also to demonstrate following the proper rules of the road, including where to ride and appropriate hand signals and gestures. We hope the videos showcase the potential ease and viability of riding to school while also breaking down any inhibitions or fears students or parents may have with the idea of riding their bike to school.
Here is a list of the three new videos we added in 2022 followed by the initial three we began with in 2021.
- Harmony Village Mobile Home Park to Fort Collins High School and Boltz Middle School
- Collins Aire Mobile Home Park to Lincoln Middle School
- Park Lane Mobile Home Park to Fort Collins High School
- Poudre Valley Mobile Home Park to Lincoln Middle School
- Timber Ridge North Mobile Home Park to Blevins Middle School
- Timber Ridge South Mobile Home Park to Webber Middle School
This exercise of creating these videos also brought attention to routes that are dangerous or need improvements. Read more about A Case for Safe Routes to School (and Other Destinations).
