Family Fun Exercise

Fundamentals of good health include exercise and a proper diet. As we have become conscious of various health risks, we want our family to be physically and emotionally healthy as well.  To this end, family fun exercise: bike riding, is one way in which parents and kids can not only enjoy exercise, but benefit from it as well.

Regardless of whether you exercise each day, or only on the weekends, it is really important for you to include exercise in your family’s routine.  Bike
riding is a fun activity, but you need to do it safely. If you have not been on a bike for a while, there are certain safety tips you’ll need to adhere to. To ensure that you and your family enjoy biking, you will need to have the proper equipment, which includes:

* Helmets
* Knee pads
* Elbow Pads
* A tail light
* Bright colored clothing
* Fully inflated tires
* Sneakers

You may be wondering why you need this equipment. Unlike years ago, when we went bike riding without protection, any fall caused breaks, strains and sometimes – head injuries. Today, these pieces of equipment are vital to the protection of you and your family. Anything could happen when bike riding.  Regardless as to whether you hit a bump in the road or run into a curb, it is better to be safe than sorry. Whether you ride around in your neighborhood, or use bike paths at your local park, ensure you follow all of the safety guidelines.

Bike riding can be an enjoyable experience. Seeing mom and dad at the helm and the kids close behind, everyone is having a great time and engaging in good healthy exercise. When this horrible winter is over, take the family bikes out of the garage and begin a Saturday routine with your family. Can you feel the warm breeze against your face? Ah, spring is just around the corner.
