Commuter Story: Danger Girl Bikes To School

(Editor’s Note: We asked our readers and writers for their commuter stories. This is Daphne’s, aka Danger Girl.)

Who Am I

I’m Daphne, but I prefer to be called Danger Girl. I go to kindergarten and I like playing with tape.

My Bike

I have a Trek Cub that used to be my brother’s.

Where You go and How Long it Is

I bike one-third mile to school and back. I also like biking to Mojo Monkey Donuts for a cotton candy donut.

Why I Ride

I ride my bike to school because my dad makes me. Sometimes we walk. I like to do tricks, like ride with my feet on the handlebars or stand on the seat.
