Gifts for Baby

Don’t leave baby out of the bicycle fun!  As soon as baby can crawl, sit, and explore, you can start introducing them to a pre-bike, and once their neck is strong enough, you can add a helmet to your bike rides.  For more information on biking with a baby, read our Guide to Biking with Baby.

About Us

The Rascals are a family of three. Kristen (mom), Blair (dad), and Parker (kiddo). We started Rascal Rides when Parker was born and we didn’t want to give up our passion for biking. As we learned, we shared. Over the years, we’ve tested hundreds of kids bikes, helmets, bike trailers, and more.

Kristen is a USA Cycling certified coach and loves to share her passion for biking with other families. Blair is a bike geek, mechanic, and mountain bike junkie. Parker is our resident tester and inspiration.

If you see us out on the trail, make sure to say hi!

  1. Great to know about the helmet! I’ll probably be getting that for the baby this year. We have Mike and the Bike and my son loves it too. Unfortunately, there are two major problems with it – the introduction by Lance Armstrong and the atrocious music. Fortunately, my son didn’t remember hearing the songs well enough to request them again in the future!

  2. it’s been a tough year for us, i have MS and then diagnosed with breast cancer. My son who is 14 has been so stressed and just down. winning a gift would be great~

  3. Yuba Spicy Curry Bosch Electric Bike with kids’ back seats would make me wanna workout little more involving kids! What a great idea! Happy Holidays!!!
