Trail Riding with Kids

by Emiley Bainbridge

Reading Time: 2 minutes 

When the weather starts warming up, we all start moving our activities outside. One of the activities that my family enjoys is bike riding on our local trails. The Oklahoma metro has a ton of options for all levels of rider that your family can enjoy, too.

Besides having a bike to ride, the only other necessities are a helmet, water and sunscreen. Exploring the trails gives kids the opportunities to recharge out in nature and get their wiggles out at the same time! My kids love the sense of accomplishment they feel when they’ve finished a long ride.
