It’s Father’s Day this Sunday, but you remembered that, didn’t you?
This week, we’re going to look at families and bikes. Most of the five million bikes in the US are owned by middle-aged men, many of whom are family men with wives and kids. So are the rest of the family involved with biking, or is it just Dad’s thing?
If you’re one of those dads, do you take your kids riding with you? Would you be happy putting them on the back of the bike and taking them to school or to their friend’s house? Will you teach them to ride? Will you let them have their own bike, or will you be getting them a car? Do you envisage a day when you’ll be out riding with your kids? If you’ve done a family bike trip, we’d love to see your pictures and hear your stories!
Looking at it another way, did your dad encourage you to ride? Or were you one of those rebels who bought a bike despite your parents’ disapproval?
We’re going to spend this week looking at dads and bikes. Because we love them both.
