Get outdoors and explore the 'hood with the kiddos on two wheels!
We love spending our time outdoors with the kids. And one of our fave things to do with the little ones in tow? Go on a family bike ride. Not only is it a great way to improve physical fitness, but it’s also great for the kiddos to get some fresh air and expend their energy (your future self will thank you). Plus, there’s no better way to explore your ‘hood than by bike. So, if you’re thinking of getting the family outdoors on a bike trail or scoot route, and you don’t want to rent a bike, why not buy bikes for you and your tykes? Luckily, we’ve got the ultimate guide to the best bike stores in Singapore right here. (Also, check out our low down on how to fit a kids bike and all the safety gear they’ll need before they get cycling). We’re talking bicycles for kids, and teens and bigger bikes for mums and dads too. Happy shopping!
