Implement Cycling in Your Family Fun Time

Nov 6, 2007
Family life is one of the first casualties of the fast paced modern life. When you have two parents that both work and children busy with school and extracurricular activities, it is often that people forget to count their blessings and start ignoring their family.

In our busy society, family fun time is not prioritized ahead of the rest of family life which can lead to parents missing out on precious moments and milestones with their children. Family time is not some kind of a project. It should come naturally to families. Just knowing that Mom and Dad are making a point to spend time with the kids can often be all the assurance children need to feel part of a cohesive family unit.

Parents can involve themselves in the development and growth of their children by adding family fun time during the weekends when the 'busies' are a little more scarce than they are during the busy work week. One of the easiest form of family activities involves physical activity. Physical activity is good for both children and adults, and if children can get active at an early age, they will be much less prone to problems such as obesity.

Cycling is a wonderful way to get the family involved in a group activity and every member of the family can participate regardless of their age. For children that are too young to ride a bike, get a seat or carrier installed on your own bike to give your child that connection and bond during family fun time, even if they are not physically able to do the activity. As children grow, use tricycles and then training wheels and then ultimately a two wheeler bike for the big kids to ensure everyone can participate in family fun time.

I can think of very few things that have given me as much bliss as watching a child learn to cycle, and if the entire family can participate in this event, then that child will not only pick up a new skill, but some wonderful boosts on self-esteem and confidence as well.

Whenever you and your family have the opportunity to spend time outside for your family fun times, you can and you should. What better way to achieve this than to go cycling and is something the whole family can enjoy. Even the babies and young children will be rewarded from this activity by being positively influenced by their parents on the merits of regular physical activity and regular time spent with the family.

Cycling is not an activity that needs to be restricted to your backyard only. Install a bike rack on your vehicle so that even when you are on vacation you can enjoy this wonderful activity together as a family.

Your child will soon become an adult, they will look back on these times and memories with fondness and the memories of cycling with the family will influence them positively in their lives. Thereby you could find the ultimate El-dorado of parenting. Giving your children a great childhood and a happy adult like.
