We have three kids, and they learned to ride their bikes in the city, on the sidewalk, with all the cabs and buses riding around. Bikes for us is an adventure. Exploring the city together as a family takes it to the next level, and turns a stroll into a city escape.
Riding, especially during COVID, is a community experience. People are happy to be together, in the same space, doing the same thing. Even if you have no idea who each other is, it feels like there’s camaraderie for commuters. Even more so, seeing our kids racing around, it always brings some laughter and some competition.
Getting to ride more as a family, made us feel like we were really connected with a community, while still staying safe.
