Get outdoors and explore the 'hood with the kiddos on two wheels!
Here at HoneyKids HQ, we love spending our time outdoors with the kids – it certainly beats visiting the same playgrounds or museums week after week after week. And, one of our favourite outdoor activities? Going for 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 for this). Plus, there’s no better way to explore your ‘hood than on a bike – much more fun than walking around on a hot sunny day.
So, if you’re thinking of getting the family outdoors, why not get your tyke (or yourself) a bike this Christmas? Luckily, you’ve landed in the right place – we’ve got the ultimate guide to the best bike stores in Singapore, right here. Happy shopping!
FOR THE KIDS

The best part? Kids as young as eight months can learn to ride, too!
