Why Kids on Bikes Is Incredible for Everyone

We love biking. Every time we travel, we find a way to get a bike rental. And if we’re going to do a tour of the city or place, it’s always more fun on bikes.

However, road biking or city biking is quite different than mountain biking. Which is what has become the new obsession of my family after my husband brought home his bike.

Unlike in the past when we have family day and either go for a walk in our town of Antigua, Guatemala, we now head outdoors to parks and even better bike parks.
