Bike riding with 5 and 3 year olds - advice needed!
Our town just put in a gorgeous bike path last fall and my husband and I want to start being more active. We are looking at getting bikes for us, and trying to decide what to do about our kids.
Do we get them their own bikes? Do we get them the bikes that attach to ours? Do we just get a trailer (and any recommendations?)?
What has worked for your family? I feel overwhelmed!
I would try getting Red a bike with training wheels or the kind that attaches to the back of a bike. That way she can learn to ride on her own. She's the right age for it. If Yellow seems coordinated enough you could try the attatched bike for her too, but they need good balance and know to hold on tight. If you're worried about it I'd look for a bike trailer on craigslist.
We might be able to swing both - I found some good deals on Craigslist, if I could just get people to reply!
Thanks all for the insight! I'm excited to be more active as a family, especially with this beautiful new bike trail to enjoy!
