Family Bicycling Fun

Remember the freedom you felt as a child riding your bicycle, what an experience every child should feel. As a parent, encouraging a child to be outside and riding a bike helps promote healthy exercise habits early on as well as increases development and mental health. It is also a great way to teach them about the environment and making it a better place to live by using bicycles instead of driving cars all the time.

One important thing to keep in mind is making sure to keep kids safe while doing so. Here are some simple rules to follow:

  • Everyone should wear a properly fitted helmet
  • Ride on the sidewalk or bike lane
  • Ride right, always ride in the same direction as traffic
  • Use hand signals
  • Wear bright clothing
  • Use bike lights

So, dust of those bicycles, buckle your helmets and spend time riding as a family.  We cannot think of a better activity to encourage bonding and togetherness while getting fresh air.
