Buga BikesTwo little bikes for two little kids
I picked Jasper up from kindergarten the other morning and this is what I saw. Really, does it get any cuter than his and hers push bikes waiting in the sunshine for a couple of four year old twins?
All the parents were oohing and aahing over the cuteness. And the kids themselves were so excited to burst out the JK gate and find their mom and their bikes.
Lots of companies are making fantastic push bikes these days. Skuut, BugaBike, Adams, Strider...you name it, they make push bikes. Of course, it's entirely possible to make your own push bike by taking off the pedals and lowering the seat on your child's bike, but if you'd like a designated push bike, they're widely available these days.
And little kids are definitely having a blast on these little balance bikes/run bikes/pre bikes/push bikes. Down in Georgia, things have gotten serious and now the 18 month-5 year mountain bike crew are striding it up at the official Georgia Peach Strider Cup. Check out the video here. Now that's a bike party.
Have your kids used push bikes? Do you think it made the transition to riding a two wheeler easier than using training wheels?
Happy riding! Kathleen.
