It is Week 2 of Bike Month and we are looking forward to seeing more photos, stories, and pledges for the You Bike.We Give event. The response has been great so far! It’s wonderful to see how many people are out biking. Everywhere you look people are walking and biking. Even the little ones are out spinning in larger numbers than before. So, keep those wheels spinning and get the whole family on it. To keep you going, this week we have biking tips, movies, and trails for the whole family.
First, let’s talk safety. We are still required to follow the new rules, social distancing, only ride solo or with your family, no large gatherings. Wear a mask or cloth covering over your face. See if you can go out when there are less people around or find a less crowded route. Wash your hand when you get home.
If your children have not yet learned how to bike, don’t despair! It’s easier to teach than you might expect. The key is to begin without any pedals. Here’s a short video from the REI outdoor school to help you get started.
When you are ready to get out of the neighborhood and try a park here are some family biking spots:
Hold a bike themed family night! Here are 5 biking movies to watch with together. View the trailers first, to see if they’re good for your child.
Don’t forget to pledge to ride at least once during May, send us a photo or a story of your ride or why you love to ride. For every pledge, photo and story we donate to a local food bank. To pledge go to https://bit.ly/vbmgmtma . To submit a photo or story, go to https://bit.ly/3ddmebS.
If you have any biking questions, contact us, we are happy to help.
Stay safe and enjoy the ride!
