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.

Dick's Sporting Goods

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.


Keep those noggins safe with a secure helmet. Available in seven colors, the helmet also has an adjustable dial so that you can change the fit as your child grows.

Dick's Sporting Goods

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.


A biking essential, especially if you and your kids are riding at dawn or dusk, is a set of front and rear lights. This pair easily wraps around any bike frame, the lights can be steady or flashing and the batteries last for about 60 hours.

Dick's Sporting Goods

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.

Academy Sports

Bikes aren't the only way to roll. These sleek skates are affordable and perfect for beginners. Easy to lace up and secure with the hook-and-loop strap, your kid will be gliding around in no time. Roller derby, here we come.


Sleek and stylish, these adjustable skates will grow with your child for four shoe sizes, so you don't have to buy a new pair every year. The sturdy base is topped with comfy linen and nylon for a snug, cozy fit.
