One of my favorite things to do with my family is to go on a bicycle ride. Now, my wife and children are not always up for a 100 mile ride with me at 5:00 am on Saturday, but not everyone has to go as crazy as me! It’s hard to believe, but spring is almost upon us, and while I have been out running and biking all winter, I am starting to see the roads and trails fill up with young families getting back on their bikes for the first time this year!
Interestingly, during the pandemic, it seems many people have found (or rediscovered) the love of cycling. I was in a local shop just the other day and they have rows of bikes waiting for tune-ups. Perhaps we are all becoming a little more attuned to the benefits of bicycle riding.
Building a lifetime of healthy habits starts at a young age, and biking is a great activity to do with the whole family. It is always a good time to encourage your kids to get out and start leading a healthy lifestyle, and to be safe on their bikes. Let’s take a look at kids’ bike safety.
