Best Bike-Related 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.

Kids in this age range are so much fun.  They are ready for biking to school, playing at the pump track with friends, and cycling longer distances.  They’re also still pretty small so make sure to pay attention to weight when buying a bike.

Best Gifts for Mom and Dad

Let’s by honest: mom and dad are the folks that make family cycling possible.   It’s great to buy your kiddo a bike but if they can’t make it uphill, you’re not going to go very far.  Here are gifts for mom and dad that will enable fun for the whole family

  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!!!
