When riding a bike is an important part of your life, it’s obvious that you’d want to pass that joy onto your children. Family biking is not only a healthy, affordable, and sustainable way to get around with your kids, but an amazing opportunity for the little ones to get to know their environment, and for you to spend quality time with them.

While the way you ride will certainly undergo some changes once you become a parent, it doesn’t mean you need to bike less or drive more, it just means you’ll need to adapt. In the following pages, we’ve outlined some tips, best practices, and gear ideas for biking with children – from babies through to school age. Happy biking!

Here are the topics we cover in The Family Biking Guide:

Biking with Babies & Toddlers
While there is no global standard on when it’s appropriate to start biking with a baby, most parents in North America tend to wait until the baby is around one year old and their neck can safely support the weight of a helmet. If you can’t wait or are wondering how other parents are riding with their babes, we discuss some global examples and different approaches parents are taking in order to start riding with their babes when they feel ready to.

Teaching Your Kid to Ride
As the expression goes, “it’s just like riding a bike.” Learning to ride a bike is a rite of passage, and a lifelong skill your kids can carry with them. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be hard to teach! We discuss the best way to get your kids biking which includes starting them young.

Biking to School and Daycare
Biking to school with your kids is a great way to ensure they arrive energized for the day, and for you to be able to nip off to work or wherever you need to go afterwards without having to run home and grab your own bike. Do you know the first step in ensuring your ride to school with the kids is safe and comfortable for all?

Balancing Family Life on Two Wheels
Balancing family life can be a struggle at the best of times. The fear that bicycling will be too slow or inefficient with kids is what leads many people to trade in two wheels for four once they become a parent, but it doesn’t have to be that way, it just requires a little adjusting. Will discuss the main things to keep in mind when cycling with kids.
