Father and son ride

This father and son were riding down Saratoga Road in San Jose, California at the intersection with I-280. This photo doesn't show it well because the cars are stacked up at the light farther back, but this intersection is extremely busy; the Santa Clara bike map labels this section of Saratoga with "Extreme Caution."

 

It was good to see this dad give his son good instruction and experience on how and where to ride. They're properly positioned in the straight through lane here instead of in the right-turn lane to their right. I'd guess the boy is about eight years old.
