We recently asked you guys for ideas to help the youngest member of the BTR team learn to cycle. Our medium term goal is to get out and about cycling as a family. With this in mind, we’ve been looking at suggestions for family cycling, and we’re pleased to share our discoveries with you!
The best source of ideas is Cycling UK; the website has a whole section dedicated to family cycling. It includes guides to A Guide to Family-Friendly Cycling Routes in the Lake District, a Guide to Cargo Bikes, How to Choose the Right Size Bike for a Child and loads more. Take a browse and see what relates to you.
We’re not sure we or you need convincing of the benefits but if you’ve got teenagers (or even tweenagers) who need a bit of encouragement, you could try (!) to sell it to them with these benefits.
With its eye on the Froomes, Reades and Pendletons of the future British Cycling offers guided rides for everyone including families through its Let’s Ride initiative.
They also run pop-up Let’s Ride events where they create a traffic-free space for families to ride together. See if there’s one taking place near you.
