The Tans moved from Natomas to Davis in 2017. “Davis’s community and culture, with its existing bike lanes, is so much safer than Natomas was,” said Tan. Although it’s not feasible for Tan’s husband, Hoa, to commute via bike, he rides with the family on the weekends. Their three boys, Ethan, 14, Matthew, 10, and Andrew, 5, have embraced active transportation. Ethan loves the increased freedom that riding his bike affords; Matthew enjoys walking to school, and is gaining bike confidence by practicing riding at his school on the weekends; and “Andrew is super enthusiastic about riding downtown to the grocery store, the farmers marketing and the library,” said Tan.
