11 Kids' Bikes and Accessories to Get Your Family Ready for Two-Wheel Adventures
Let's go for a ride! Take a look at these bicycles and accessories perfect for fun family bike trips with your young kids and toddlers.
One of the best outdoor activities for the whole family is going on a bike ride together. Whether you're hitting the city bike lanes or surrounding greenways, having the right equipment ensures you and your kids will have a successful and fun outing.
See our top picks for making sure little and big kids get to have a comfortable and enjoyable ride. Plus, we've added in a few rolling alternatives for those days when kids aren't feeling the bicycle, but still want to keep up.
Secure your child in this bike seat to take an enjoyable ride together. Designed for kids 9 months to around 6 years old (48.5 pounds), the seat has 10 height adjustments, comfortable shoulder straps and a back that can be easily tilted for a napping kiddo. A dual suspension system guarantees your child rides in comfort.
This budget-friendly seat puts your kid (12 months to 33 pounds) front and center while you explore your neighborhood or local greenway. Not only does this seat fit most bikes, but the one-click installation makes it easy to attach and detach.
To get them started on their own cycling journey, try a balance bike. Kids 18 months to 5 years ride and stride, learning how to balance the lightweight bike — no training wheels necessary. Made with a durable steel frame and puncture-proof tires, you don't have to worry about this bike taking on too much wear and tear.
After they've mastered the balance bike or graduated from training wheels, it's time for an upgrade. This 20-inch bike centers weight so that young riders can take on multiple terrains, and the single-speed concept allows kids to get comfortable with riding before having to learn to shift gears.
Changing gears and tackling nature, this seven-speed lightweight steel bike is the next step up in riding. When your adventure-seeking kiddo is ready to head off-road, start them off with a mountain bike that's designed to handle bumpy, rough trails with ease.
For less than $15, keep scrapes, bruises and skinned knees to a minimum. The set includes a pair of knee pads, elbow pads and padded fingerless gloves, so your kid can be the daredevil they want to be and you have a little peace of mind.
Pick up this sweetly durable basket to hold all their essentials — water bottles and snacks — and their found treasures — leaves, flowers, rocks and feathers. The quick-release bracket lets you mount and remove the basket easily, while the handle allows the basket to be toted around when it's off the bike.
