Getting the kids outside during the winter is a challenge. Sometimes it’s easier to just stay inside where its warm and cozy, although cabin fever sets in after a while and mentally you just need to GET OUT! My daughter stated she wanted to go for a bike ride in mid February and appeared from
the gear room, ready to go, with her snowsuit, ski helmet and goggles. What a great idea. Lets do it. I ride my bicycle year round, why can’t she.
The sun was out and most of the snow had disappeared, so I ventured out to Eastside Rec in Saratoga Springs with my 3 year old daughter, M, 7 month old son and of course, Luna, our faithful companion. I had the BOB stroller and my daughter’s radio flyer tricycle. The BOB is the bomb and a must have for an adventure family. I once rolled around town with M in a blizzard. No problem.
The running track at the park was plowed and made a prefect place for some winter tricycling. Everyone had a great time, got tired out, and when we got back home, they were ready for their naps. Just because its cold out, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy other seasonal activities. Just bundle up and go for it.
