Where do the Children Play?

Last summer, Bicycle Alliance staffer Seth Schromen-Wawrin created a digital story that recalls how wonderful it was to explore his neighborhood by bike as a child and asks why he doesn't see kids doing this today.  Seth made this video in a workshop for the Mapping Our Voices for Equality project in King County.  We think it will bring back fond memories for many folks so we'd like to share it.



  1. What can we do to encourage adults to bike and explore their own neighborhoods? I think this is the key to the parents feeling comfortable about the safety of their neighborhood as well as making the neighborhoods safer.

  2. This brought back great memories of growing up riding my used one-speed and feeling such freedom. I love the book "Last Child in the Woods." We need to continue to educate people, as your video has done so well. Thanks!
