Biking for Kids

Do you remember the thrill you got when first learning to ride your bike? One of the thrills of riding a bike is the freedom you experience. Now that the weather is finally starting to cooperate here in Chicago, cyclists are making their way through the city. As May is National Bike Month, this is the perfect time to dust off your bike and get going.

Whether you are a new cyclist or an experienced rider, share these books with your family:

Go Fly A Bike! is great for older readers. You can discover the history of cycling, learn about picking out the perfect bike and most importantly, bike safety. One very cool addition is the flip book created by Chris Murphy.

Staying Safe on My Bike is part of the Safety First series. This book will appeal to beginning readers and cyclists with its simple, easy-to-read text, and accompanying photos.

Where to Bike is a wonderful guide for families with a special section of 27 just for kids. Rides range from beginner to experienced on bike paths to challenging dirt trails.
