As a kid, one thing I loved to do was ride my bike. My friends and I use to race up and down our block for hours. However, back then, we didn’t have iPads, Netflix and Xbox. We played outside until the street light came on. However, the times have changed and we live in a technology world. There is nothing wrong with this, but we have to remember to kick our kids out of the house and outside to play. I want to share with you 5 reason why your kids should ride their bikes.
Though I am okay with my son playing on his iPad and Xbox, I want him to play outside as well. Technology isn’t everything and before my son knows it, his childhood is going to be over and he’s going to wish he played outside more. I feel like kids these days think technology is everything and if they miss out on playing their favorite games, the world is going to end. Jaiden loves riding his bike and that is the reason I wanted to share with you all 5 reasons why your kids should ride their bikes.
5 Reasons Why Your Child Should Ride Their Bike
Riding your bike is simply fun. It’s a great way to get the kids out of the house and let them have fun. They can make up games and races to keep themselves occupied for hours of fun. Jaiden loves riding his bike and enjoys going in circles and seeing how fast he can go.
Keeps kids physically active.
Bike riding uses a ton of muscles that kids don’t even realize they are getting a great workout. It keeps them active, their muscles moving and their heart going strong. Kids don’t usually like the word exercise as they feel it means work but they don’t realize half the games they play outside like riding bikes, is exercise.
It has health Benefits.
Riding your bike has great health benefits. Your muscles become stronger with all the different movements you do over and over. And because of the speed, you can improve your heart. Riding your bike will also make other activities easier because you have already exercised with bike riding.
It’s good for the environment.
Riding your bike is a great means of transportation. While riding in a car can be faster and maybe more comfortable, bike riding doesn’t impact the environment like cars do. Car pollution is one of the major issues we have today toward global warming. By riding your bike, you are helping the environment.
It’s something the family can do together.
Though we live in a world of technology, families should still spend time together and do things as a family. Riding bikes together is a great way to stay active and enjoy each other company while creating fun everlasting memories.
As a little girl, I loved riding my bike. It was one of my favorite things to do. I am now a proud mom to a little boy who also loves riding his bike. Loves riding it so much he is always coming in with skinned knees and stretches. Which is okay, because he’s having fun and that is all that matters. There are many different reasons why your kids or even you should ride your bike but at the end of the day it’s all about having fun and creating memories. So, now hop off the computer, grab your helmets and bikes and go riding with your family!
