Family Cycling Blog:

More and more parents and kids are discovering the recreational, transportation and health benefits of cycling together.

Family Cycling is fun.

And the fun can start young. We discuss the family adventures, the gear that families use, and how to use it safely.

Turn kids from passive, parent-powered passengers into active cyclists themselves as they grow.

Submit Your Family Cycling Photos

Cycling together as a family can be more fun and meaningful than the most epic tour. And the photos you take make irresistible blog fodder -- and we mean that in a really good way.

We love to collect photos of the products that make bikes part of the family. Send us anything from that photo of your child first learning to ride, to that photo of the whole family out on a cycling. Submit your family cycling photos here and we'll let you know when we publish them.

Chariot + Strider = Awesome!

The Bike Kid Shop has decided to make an offer that can’t be refused. We all know that Chariot child trailers are some of the best child trailers on the market. They are the BMW of child trailers, with all the attention to detail and performance that will make any child smile and any parent contented. Bike Kid Shop is now offering even more of a reason to own one of these great child trailers. With the purchase of any Chariot CX 1, CX 2, Cougar 1, Cougar 2 or Corsaire XL the Bike Kid Shop is including a free Strider Balance Bike.

Now this is more than just a fancy marketing ploy. Here at the Bike Kid Shop, we have thought long and hard about what type of promotion would most benefit children and parents from the extensive inventory that we have to offer. The reason that we chose this combination is simple: The Strider Balance Bike is the ideal next step to transitioning a child from riding with you in a bike trailer to riding a bike themselves. Training wheels and tricycles are things of the past. Balance bikes teach kids how to ride a two-wheeled bike and how to balance on two wheels, but without the added step of pedal motion. Training wheels and trikes provide a false learning crutch for children learning to ride on two wheels. Training wheels and tricycles stabilize the bike prohibiting the child from learning how to properly balance a bike.

Strider Balance Bike are simple in design and theory, take out all the complications and just teach children to balance on two wheels. Then, before you know it, the transition to a real bike will be seamless. You will be able to enjoy all the creature comforts of your Chariot trailer for years until that day that you little one is ready to branch out on their own, then all you have to do is reach for the Strider Balance Bike. Check out what Balance Bike Reviews and Bike Shop Hub have had to say about balance bikes.

There really isn’t a better combination for long term fun on the market. Owning a Chariot child trailer couldn’t be better. And knowing you have the next step already lined up certainly provides peace of mind. So don’t miss this great opportunity to own one of the best child trailers on the market and to receive a free Strider Balance Bike. It is the commitment of the Bike Kid Shop to help parents create a safe and fun outdoor experience for the whole family.
