As a parent, you have the opportunity to be a great role model for your child, by riding safely, wearing a helmet, walking or biking instead of driving, and teaching your kids how to be safe and healthy. We’ve prepared some materials and links to some of our favorite websites with some ideas in getting your kids to stay physically active. Check out the Family Rides page for some tips on where you can take your children to walk and bike in Philadelphia. Do you know if Safe Routes Philly is active at your child’s school? Check out the Safe Routes Philly program currently active in Philadelphia elementary schools.
The Bicycle Coalition held their second ABCs of Family Biking on November 9th, 2013. We’ve updated our resource guide for those parents looking to learn more about riding with their families. This guide will continue to be updated as we collect more data from local bike shops about what products they carry.
