Three Reasons Why You Should Cycle as a Family
We’re not going to lie, family life is busy and hectic and so getting everyone out and ready at the same time with their bikes can be tricky. But that effort is worth it!
Quality Time for Everyone – it’s a fun way of spending time with your family while not spending a penny (providing you all have bikes already). Plus, with cargo-bikes, child seats and even baskets for pets – everyone can get involved.
Teaching Healthy Habits – the saying ‘monkey see, monkey do’ is particularly true for exercise. Showing your children how fun staying active is far more powerful than telling them how fun staying active is. Better still at an event like Let’s Ride, you’ll see all ages and abilities riding and having fun.
Being Screen Free – kids (and adults) love devices whether it be a tablet, phone or good old fashioned TV. Going for a cycle is a great way to get everyone to do a ‘digital detox’ and enjoy real life adventures, even if you do stop for the odd selfie along the way.
