Biking with Kids

Biking   with Kids

There can be a plethora of activities to do as a parent with your kid. As a parent you love to enjoy seeing your child run around and do so many activities which can be impossible yet beautiful. One of the major activities to indulge in could be biking with your kids. From a very early age, kids love to enjoy and indulge in activities which are adventurous and make them feel capable enough of doing or achieving something. Biking can be a very good example of this. When any toddler conquers the feeling of having ridden a bike it makes them feel like an achiever. Another good thing about biking is you yourself can pick the two wheeler and hit the roads with your children irrespective of your age. So yes, biking with kids is very good for the following

It is good if you start small.

Even babies can accompany you on some bike rides. Taking little ones along in a bike seat or trailer helps them get used to this kind of travel and the benefits it has to offer: fresh air, pretty sights, and shared time with mom or dad. (A helmet is an absolute must for safety—and so kids learn that every time they're on a bike, they need to wear a helmet.)

Set goals: At first, challenge kids to bike as far as a nearby park or ice-cream shop. Then keep adding distance and more difficult terrain. "We find tracks that are challenging but not too far, and see how they do," says Chad. When they visit new parks, sometimes the family bikes together in the morning on milder trails. Then in the afternoon Chad goes scouting to find more trails for the family to tackle together.



Get some gear: Chad's boys like having basic bike computers to track their mileage, and they also love having jerseys, shorts, and a Camelback hydration system just like Mom and Dad's.



Practice can be fun: Using his lawnmower and some scrap lumber for jumps and teeter-totters, Chad sets up tracks at home for his boys. Riding on the track helps build biking stamina and skills—but the kids just think it's cool (especially when Dad films them with his video camera).
