4 Reasons to Ride Bikes as a Family

4 Reasons to Ride Bikes as a Family

We’re big believers in families that ride together, thrive together. Remember when you were a kid and the best thing ever was riding around on your bike? Well cycling isn’t just for little kids, it’s perfect for parents as well – especially on matching bikes! Reid Cycles range of Vintage Bikes cater to men, women and kids. They’re stylish and easy to ride, built with safe, quality components. Perfect for the whole family to get out together for a ride!

These are our top 4 reasons why you should ride your bikes together as a family:

It’s a great way to introduce a fun, healthy activity to your kids from a young age
Riding a bike is a great way to get the heart rate up while being gentle on joints and muscles. It’s one of the best exercises for people of all ages. So lead by example and get the kids cycling when they’re young and
they’ll have a healthy, fun activity that they can love to do for their whole life.

The whole family will be able to bond, have fun and relieve stress
Exercise and fresh air make a fantastic combo when it comes to relieving stress and putting a big smile on your dial. Cycling as a family means everyone can roll together in the great outdoors, enjoying time as a family while having tonnes of fun.

Kids will become more familiar with their local area
Getting out on a cycling adventure is a great way to show kids around the neighbourhood. They’ll become more familiar with their surroundings and it’s a great way to help them build the confidence to start riding to school.

Challenge yourselves to do something as a family 
Working towards a goal as a family is a great way to strengthen family ties and teach kids to work in a team. Why not sign up for a family fun ride like the 25km Around the Bay Family Ride? It might sound like a long way, but it’s all on closed roads with no traffic to worry about and you’ll take in awesome sights around Melbourne. Imagine how proud you and your kids will be after completing a big challenge together!

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.


  1. To get out there in be in with the kids not straggling behind I need a bike to avoid this hike

  2. To keep up with the kids would be great…. And finally my ‘active wear’ would be used for more than cleaning the house ?

  3. So I can witness my son experience freedom on 2 wheels and exercising together on bikes would be phenomenal.

  4. To give my son more confidence in riding his bike. He tends to worry too much about what might happen instead of enjoying it. More practice the more comfortable he will get cycling.

  5. To spend quality time together outdoors while having fun, keeping fit and burning off that extra energy my daughter always has!

  6. Fresh air and a wonderful way of exploring the area I live in and discovering new things!

    Always with their dad!
    Would love to join the fun too:
    And the best exercise to be had!

  14. It’ll bring back an old past time,
    Riding around having so much fun,
    Racing with my mum.

  15. I’m excited to start my son out early on a healthy, active lifestyle. I was very sedentary as a child so I want him to learn early how to be healthy and have fun doing it!

  16. My parents were the type to be really over protective and never let me learn to ride a bike.I’d really like to try and learn and show my kids that I can put my pride aside and learn at this late age. Hopefully I can gain confidence and they can too.

  17. We’ve swapped stuffing our faces with food for doing something active as a family on mother’s and father’s days. We all feel so much better for it!

  18. A girlie day for my daughter and I
    Reconnecting as the days go by
    Cycle down to our favourite place
    Time together we’d truly embrace!

  19. I’ve been using a secondhand bike for a couple years now with my son sitting behind me. He’s nearly outgrown his seat, so it’s nearly time for him to have his very own bike.

    We love riding around our local pond as he adores ducks, birds etc and also riding around our local neigbourhood. It’s lovely going bike riding with the whole family, as it gets us out of the house and get active and breathing in the fresh seasonal air. 😀

    Evergreen fields of flowers,
    In search of adventure,
