20 Products To Jazz Up Your Bike

By Erin Loechner |

bikesI read a fascinating study this morning explaining that children who bike or walk to school have a far greater ability to concentrate. I mean, it makes sense. Exercise is sort of the answer to everything, right? (I’m saying this begrudgingly, as I have very little motivation to utilize my yoga pants for anything other than curling up on the sofa with a great book.) Yet then I discovered how few children actually bike to school. And how one school even banned bikes. It’s disheartening to see, especially when you consider that cars, the desired mode of transportation, are far more dangerous than bikes.

So in an effort to jump-start my own biking adventures just in time for National Bike Month in May, I’m sharing a few of my favorite biking goodies for young and old. After all, if a polka dotted helmet doesn’t inspire my family to get off the couch, what will? Enjoy!:
