Bicycling with the whole family is a wonderful summer activity. Not only is it fun, but it will help the family get out and explore!
So what’s new in the cycling world? Well there are always new bicycles and with growing families, they will need to be changed for larger frames as the kids are growing. Hopefully there is someone younger who can inherit the outgrown bike. I know with my own grandchildren, bikes seem to be on the radar almost every year. At 8-6-4 they are in the formative years of growing and it will continue for a while.
The good news is that there are younger ones to hand down last year’s bikes to. The Bad news, is that sometimes the younger ones feel like they aren’t worthy of a new bike……They always seem to get what’s left over. It’s all part of that second, third or more child syndrome.
I can remember it well, as I was the second in line in my own family. Growing up was sometimes bittersweet, because I did always get the left overs. The secret is to make the left overs look great and new again.
To help you with that chore, I found something that I think would just make any kid happy to get a bike and dress it up in a way that will make their new (handed down) bike amazing. Check this out:
Can you just see their faces when the sun starts to go down, and they are on their way home from the park and the bike they are riding starts to glow! They and their friends are going to go crazy!
These multi colored lights fit onto the spokes of the bikes with installation taking about 20 minutes at the most. They are waterproof so you don’t have to worry about rain ruining your fun. They also turn off automatically if the wheels are not in motion. Check what you are ordering and know that with these lights on your bikes you will be seen much more clearly than if you just have a front and rear light. Plus they are really cool.
I have been reading customer satisfaction reports and I am surprised at how many avid bike riders are impressed with the visibility after adding these lights. What you will find is that I have offered you several different types of lights. Some go on the spokes of the wheels while others are actually attached to the inner side of the rims. For children, who won’t be riding without parental support at night, the ones that fit on the spokes will give them the “cool” factor and they are easy to install and inexpensive too! Kids will love the lights when you are out in the evenings for a ride, or if you take your bikes on camping trips. In the woods the lights will make them much easier to spot. From a cool and safety perspective this is a winning situation for the parents who are making the purchase. They will be heroes for sure.
The lights that fit onto the rims take a little more effort in installation, but are also much brighter and made for people who use their bikes for serious riding at night. You will become much more visible to the cars on the road and the cars will give you more space when they know you are there. Safety comes first, but the cool factor is fun even for grown ups who use their bikes for daily transportation.
If you are looking for safety and fun at the same time, I would say that this is a winner for you and your family.
