BERT: [SINGING] Sure, I've got two little wheels on the side, but that's why my bike is one sweet ride. They help keep me up, help me stay in control. I won't give them up, that's just how I roll. That's how I roll. Oh yeah, that's how I roll. I've got to have each and every wheel because that's how Bert is keeping it real. I've got training wheels and I've got soul. I won't give them up, that's how I roll. That's how I roll. Oh yeah, that's how I roll. ZOE: Hi, I'm Zoe, and I'm here to tell you about the word-- [ELMO VROOMING AROUND] ELMO: Tweet! Transportation! ZOE: That's right, Elmo. ELMO: Oh, no, no, no. Elmo's not Elmo anymore, Elmo's a car. Vroom, vroom vroom, vroom, vroom, vroom. ZOE: A car? But Elmo, we're supposed to be telling everybody about transportation. Oh wait a second, I see what Elmo's doing. Transportation is a way of getting from one place to another, and a car gets you from one place to another so a car is-- ELMO: Vroom, vroom, vroom. Screech! Transportation! ZOE: That's right. Elmo, check this out. What am I? [CHUGGING] ZOE: Choo, choo! [CHUGGING] Choo, choo! ELMO: Elmo knows. Miss Zoe is a train. ZOE: And a train is? ELMO: Transportation!

BOTH: Transportation! ZOE: Elmo, I want to be a plane. ELMO: Go for it. ZOE: OK. [SWOOSHING] ZOE: Oh hey, Elmo? Let's be rocket ships. ELMO: OK. Oh, wait a minute. Are rocket ships transportation? ZOE: Well, they can take you from the earth to the moon. So rocket ships are definitely transportation. ELMO: Oh well then, Elmo and Miss Zoe should do it. ZOE: OK. ELMO: OK. You ready? ZOE: Yes. Three-- BOTH: Two. One. Blast off! Transportation! ZOE: Come on, Elmo, let's go get some lunch. ELMO: How will Elmo and Miss Zoe get there? ZOE: Why don't we take a motorcycle? ELMO: Good idea, get on! ZOE: OK! ELMO: You on? ZOE: Yes! ELMO: OK. [VROOMING] [ELMO LAUGHS] GROVER: Greetings! It is I, your fuzzy and blue safety expert, Grover. Today, I will demonstrate how to be safe on a bicycle with the help of, um, this chicken! Do not worry my fine feathered volunteer, I am an expert after all. We shall begin with this helmet. Yes, this helmet right here, which should look very nice on your knee. CHICKEN: [CLUCKS] GROVER: You are right, that does not look like it would fit your knee. Perhaps your elbow. Yeah. CHICKEN: [CLUCKS] GROVER: Or your head. That's using your noggin my little chickadee, and protecting it too. And now for these ear pads for extra ear protection. CHICKEN: [CLUCKS] GROVER: What is that, little clucker? I can not hear you with my ear pads. CHICKEN: [CLUCKS] GROVER: And they can also be elbow pads, or wing pads if you happen to be poultry. And also for bike safety protection are these backside pads. Yes, to keep your perky tail feathers safe. CHICKEN: [CLUCKS] GROVER: Knee pads? Perhaps our beaky friend is right. You need some knee protection after all. So there you have it. The helmet, followed by the elbow, or wing pads, and the knee pads. You are ready to ride, Henny Penny. Now put the pedal to the metal, chicken! CHICKEN: [CLUCKS IN FEAR] [CHICKEN CRASHES AND CLUCKS] GROVER: And finally, be sure your volunteer chicken can actually ride a bicycle. CHICKEN: [CLUCKS ANGRILY] GROVER: Oh, why did you not tell me you could not ride that bicycle? I would have gotten training wheels. NARRATOR: And now, our spokesperson. WOMAN: Hello there, bicycle fans. Guess what? I love bicycles? You know why? Because they're fun! Fun to ride. Whee! Fun to go places on. Whoopee! Fun to exercise on. Feeling the burn. They're even fun to sing about. Hey, let's sing a song about a bike now. You may know the song already about a bus. I changed it to a bike because I love bikes. Get ready. Oh! [SINGING] The wheels on a bike go round and round, round and round, round and round. The wheels on the bike go round and round, all through the town. The bell on the bike goes ding, ding, ding. Ding, ding ding. Ding, ding, ding. The bell on the bike goes ding, ding, ding. All through the town. The handlebars on the bike go turn, turn, turn. Turn, turn, turn. Turn, turn, turn. The handlebars on the bike go turn, turn, turn. All through the town. The person on the bike goes up and down, up and down, up and down. The person on the bike goes up and down all through the town! That was great, and now I'm going to ride my bike all through the town. See you next time! ELMO: Wow, look at this bike. Whoa! Whoa, it's so colorful! ABBY: Hiya, Elmo. Wow. What a nice bike! ELMO: Yeah, it's cool. Boy, Elmo would love to go for a ride on it. ABBY: Well, why don't you? ELMO: Oh, well, Elmo's not ready. ABBY: Oh, true. You do have to be ready to ride a bike. But, I can help you with that. ELMO: What? Abby can? ABBY: Sure thing! All it takes is a little magic. ELMO: A helmet? ABBY: Sure! You have to wear a helmet when you ride a bike. ELMO: Well Elmo knows, Abby, but-- ABBY: Good, cause it's important to be safe. And now, you're ready to ride. ELMO: No, but Abby, Elmo's still not ready. ABBY: Oh, I get it. You want to be even safer! That's a great idea! There you go! Elmo pads, wrist guards, and knee pads. Now are much safer, so you can take that ride now! ELMO: But Abby, all this stuff is great, but Elmo's still not ready to ride that bike! ABBY: Wow! You really are serious about safety! Well, don't you worry, Elmo, I know just what to do. There you go, Elmo. Now you're as safe as you can possibly be. ELMO: Abby-- ABBY: Oh, yeah, you don't have to thank me. I am just happy that I could be the one that-- ELMO: Abby! Shh. Abby. Elmo's not ready to ride that bike! ABBY: How can you say that? ELMO: Because Elmo doesn't know how to ride a two wheeler. ABBY: You don't? ELMO: No, Elmo can ride a tricycle, but Elmo hasn't learned to ride a big bike yet. That's why Elmo's not ready to ride. ABBY: [LAUGHS] Oh, boy. [LAUGHS] ELMO: [LAUGHS] ABBY: I'm sorry, Elmo. ELMO: Oh, it's OK. Elmo wants to ride a bike like that someday, but right now Elmo will ride his tricycle, instead. ABBY: Well that sounds like a good idea. ELMO: Yeah. ABBY: And hey, at least you've got your safety gear on, you're protected, so you're ready to ride your trike. See ya, Elmo! ELMO: Oh, bye Abby! Bye! Oh no. Elmo's too protected. Elmo can't ride like this. Abby, come back! Elmo's not ready to ride. No, Elmo's OK. Elmo's protected. [MUSIC PLAYING] MAN: [SINGING] Let's go driving in an automobile, let's take a ride in the car.
