Spring is here and Summer is coming!!  This is the time of year where I want to send the kids outside and tell them to stay there until dinner time (that’s what my parents did, what’s wrong with following traditions?).  Don’t fret, I let them come back in…

Part of getting ready for warmer weather is making sure all the bikes still fit each girl (and helmets).  Figuring out what size bike and helmet to get can feel tricky, but it’s very important to get the right size.  The helmet doesn’t do any good if it’s falling off and don’t be like me… buying a new bike only for them to get on and not be able to reach the pedals.

The Schwinn SmartStart program has created a great way for you to know they are in the right helmet and on a bike that fits them.  Check out this Ride Guide:

The Ride Guide will help you find the right fit—even as your child grows!

I really would encourage you to go big and have a bike for everyone in the family.  I have so many fun memories of family bike rides.  My favorite was when I learned that letting my husband lead really is best as we attempted to ride a tandem bike.  I drove us straight into a big trashcan and promptly let him take over the driving.  It was a life lesson probably…


Even teaching kids to ride makes for fun memories.  Whether you are a run behind them the whole way parent or not, it is time you are giving to them and they will love every minute.

Schwinn SmartStart Bikes

Schwinn SmartStart Bikes are designed and optimized specifically for kids.  From the pedal position to smaller handle grips for little hands Schwinn’s goal is to help them be comfortable so they can learn easily and quickly and build confidence.

My favorite part is that the bike is designed to “grow” with the kid. When the seat of a Schwinn SmartStart bicycle is raised the angle as well as the distance from the seat to the handlebars and seat and to the pedals also increases. This means that as your child grows the bike fits them for a longer period of time.

If you are looking to buy a new bike, Schwinn SmartStart bikes and helmets are sold at Kohl’s, Amazon, Target and Academy Sports online or locally.
