12 Days of Gear Giveaways: Day 2 – Biking Family

    If you just found us, welcome! We’re so glad you’re here. Be sure to go to our START HERE page for a better idea of what we’re all about! We hope you stick around and join our community – we love getting families outside. You can also find links to all our giveaways here

    As a family we LOVE bikes. They are integrated into our lives on a daily basis. As long as there is no serious ice on the road, we are riding them daily year-round. Mtn Papa rides every day to work, no exceptions (studded tires and serious winter gear help when needed). In fact, our car usually sits throughout the week and is used just for going further distances on the weekends.

    Logically, we have encouraged a love of biking for our kids and have seen them learn so much about LIFE on their own two wheels. We strongly believe that EVERY child should have a chance to ride – which is the reasoning for the giveaway today.

    We also have to do a HUGE shout-out to Two Wheeling Tots. If you haven’t seen their site, go there now. The wealth of information on kid biking is incredible. They also happen to have helped put together two thirds of the giveaways today. For that we are incredibly thankful. Please head over and thank them personally.

    Before we get to the giveaway, here’s a short list of our favorite biking posts we have previously published. In the spring we will be revealing some awesome kids’ bike reviews and tips on how to transition kids through the different levels of biking, but we’re focussing on the snow for now. Stay tuned for that!

     

    Let’s Get some Kids on Bikes….
