: Ep 2 -
"Room to Ride"
Binky really enjoys riding his bike, both for fun and as a means of getting to school and back. Elwood City's potholed roads are not conducive to biking, however, and Binky is devastated when his mother forbids him from riding on the streets after he comes home injured. After hearing that the upcoming election will include an issue on bike lanes, Binky whips himself and his friends into action, but has trouble getting anyone to care. Muffy tries to convince him that he needs "star power," but a visit from an actual star helps him to see what's really important.
