They say that once you learn how to ride a bike, you will never forget how to do it. When it comes to the point of shopping for your child’s bike when you become a parent, however, there seems to be a genuine void of practical and useful information available.
A little while back I experienced the challenge of searching for bikes for our twins, and both my wife and I realised there should be some useful source for support to help concerned parents make wise choices for their most precious of all possessions, their children.
We believe it is more important than ever before to encourage children to experience the joy of bike riding. Kids on bikes make as much sense as the sunshine in our world.
Many of the sedentary options from technology led by the laptop, cellphone and gaming box, have quickly stepped ahead of the traditional wholesome experience of mounting a bicycle and heading out on a safe adventure in the open air.
I am a proud parent who is in my mid-thirties, of course, my lovely wife will remain 29 forever, but we both agree that children are best preserved when they are “aired out” from time to time.
Research has shown that this generation is the physically weakest of all and with passing time the trend will continue unless we, as parents help to make some changes.
What We Want to Share
We want to share pictures with our readers and exchange personal experiences about all types of bikes as well as bike-related experiences.
We want parents to have full confidence in the fact that they can draw upon the experience and knowledge of others when it comes time to make that decision for their children which is more significant than many may realize.
We want those of us who have eventually removed our “training wheels” concerning parental biking needs for children to help the novice shopper make safe and satisfying purchasing decisions for the little people in their lives who represent the future.
What We Welcome
We welcome product reviews, personal stories that are real which make us laugh, smile or even shed the occasional tear to help preserve a better kids on bikes experience.
We cherish the opinions of those who share their love for their children and bikes and even those who may only have an appreciation for bikes who may not have experienced the blessings of children.
Anything and everything which will inform and help others to understand the importance of making the right call when it comes to cycling needs is appreciated by all members of what we consider to be our happy biking family.
