Pedal with Your Kids: Join Us at the Family Try-A-Bike


The Many Perks of Biking with Your Little Ones

By Duo Wang, Women & Biking intern & Ngani Ndimbie, communications manager

Whether your kids can or cannot pedal, you can certainly enjoy happy family hours with them on bikes.


  • Riding a bike is wonderful for children’s health, fitness, and development.
  • Spending time together in the fresh air on bikes is (practically) free and fun.
  • Cycling can help kids get to know their local area and feel part of their neighborhood.
  • Riding with your kids can build a lifelong hobby and precious family memories.

However, you may run into some questions and concerns when you start cycling with your kids.


  • Having difficulty in getting your kids started riding a bike?
  • Have no idea how to choose a suitable bike and child-carrying equipment for your kid?
  • Wondering where to bike with your family?
  • Not sure whether your family is properly dressed and prepared for the elements?
