Pello Revo 16″ Bike Review






    The Pello Revo is an excellent US-built 16″ bike boasting kid-specific geometry, a lightweight frame and the most aggressive tires we’ve seen on a kid bike. Because of the fact that it comes with coaster brakes AND a rear wheel hand-brake, it’s a great bike for new riders coming right off a balance bike or […]

    Ride the Hiawatha Trail!






      We have been talking about going to ride the Hiawatha Trail for years now. Finally a few weeks ago, everything came together and we managed to make the trip over to Idaho to ride. The trail  ($10/adult; $6/kid aged 6-13)) is 15 miles long, with a 1.6% downgrade going along the abandoned railroad bed from […]

      Fat Biking for Kids + TykesBykes Review and *Giveaway*






        We ar all about encouraging our kids (and ourselves) to try new things on a regular basis. Easier said than done, but a good way to not get stuck in a rut. This winter J (aged *almost* 7) got to join his daddy on a Snow Bike, thanks to TykesBykes new Fat Byke (see our review […]

        O.F.F. Rowdywares for Kids!






          O.F.F. = Outdoor Fashion Friday.  Our (almost) weekly segment featuring our favorite styles for the season. Everything I share are pieces that can be worn all day long and stand up to the “use and abuse” of serious adventures. As a family, we appreciate clothing that is worth our hard-earned money. It’s what we wear […]

          Osprey Hydration Packs for Kids






            Ah the daily quest to keep the kids hydrated. It’s so much harder than it should be. Honestly my biggest “trick” is giving them their own hydration pack (and/or bottles…though the packs seem to hold their interest longer). Having ownership of their water really does work. And I usually just don’t fill them completely full, […]

            FirstBike Balance Bike Review






              FirstBike makes a whole line-up of balance bikes for kids aged ~18 months – 3 years. Their frame is a unique composite material that is virtually unbreakable AND has no sharp edges, which is great for younger kids. P has been riding a pedal bike for a long time now, but at least a few […]

                  Every Kid Should Learn to Bike – May is Bike Month!






                    May is Bike Month! Every able-bodied kid should learn how to bike. Every single one. As a society we sort of take biking for granted – we assume that by the time a child is at least 10 or so, they know how to ride and can do so safely and efficiently. But, that’s not […]
