Start with a short, easy trip:
Your first ride as a family should be relaxing, short and sweet. It is good to have an idea of what your kids are capable of on the bike before setting off on a lengthy ride. Look for a path that is likely a flat, paved path, and away from traffic. In time you can increase distance, incline, and explore more challenging paths.
Helmets are of the utmost importance when riding with children. They should fit snugly and not rock side to side or back and forth. Click here for a video instructing how to fit a children’s helmet
What to Pack:
In addition to helmets, make sure to bring sunscreen, plenty of water and snacks. Hydration is key for a successful bike ride! It’s also a good idea to pack a small first aid kit in case of any accidents.
Stop for a treat:
Bring a special treat with you on the ride, or plan to stop along the way for ice cream or a fun snack. Enjoy the time with your family and a day spent being active!
