Twitter Party for #SchwinnJoyRide Friday!

Join us tonight, Friday the 12th, at 9:00 p.m. eastern as we SiteWarm a very resourceful site, Schwinn Joyride
For many parents there is a disconnect between the treasured memories of their youth and what they are able to offer their children. One such memory for me is the time I spent riding my bike all over town. Like many children growing up in a rural area, my bike was my escape, and at a very young age I could just as easily bike my way to a pack of bubble gum at the closest gas station as I could travel to play with a friend.
Times have changed. The advent of safety rules and changes in bicycles themselves have made this favorite past time much safer for children of all ages! But as rural areas and small suburbs have given way to bustling towns, many parents like myself do not know where to start with introducing the love of biking to our children.

Schwinn is here to help! Help me SiteWarm the new site, Schwinn Joyride: The Ultimate Resource for Two-Wheeled Family Adventure. Users will be able to:

  • Create a biking journal
  • Check out the featured bike of the month
  • Read blog articles about topics ranging from when to remove training wheels to deciding when your child is ready for a bike
  • Find great trails for a short family bike hike or a long bike vacation
  • Watch videos and read tips on how to teach your child to ride a bike
  • Learn about bike gear from helmets to all the bells and whistles (literally!)
  • Utilize biking safety checklists
  • Discover the importance of proper bicycle maintenance
  • Become fit by learning about fitness through biking
