Tips for Fun Family Bike Rides

As you explore your neighborhood and surrounding community on your bike, here are a few tips to make it easier for you and your family.

Drink plenty of water
Have a bottle cage, handlebar bag, or backpack with you to carry water.

Pack on-the-go snacks
Check out some AZ Health Zone recipes for on the go.

Bring a tool kit
Carrying just a few essentials on the trails at least gives you peace of mind if a wheel or chain falls off.

Carry a first-aid kit
You never know when a skinned knee, bug bite, or scratch might happen. Plus, having wet wipes, band-aids, and sunscreen along are always helpful as well.

Tell a family friend where you are going or bring along your cell phone in case of emergency!

Depending on the age of your kids, bring lots of patience and maybe start with a destination in mind, such as a park.
