Undrivers #2,542-2,546: The Biking Spivaks

The Spivak Family got licensed last year at ArtsWalk in Olympia, with Intercity Transit.  A great Undriving moment for me:  Watching 12-year-old “Z” help his youngest brother Milo come up with his pledge.  (That’s the future of Undriving, I thought to myself!)  Read on about the Biking Spivaks: “Our family tries to ride bikes whenever […]
