  • Gretchen - That balance bike looks great! My three year old has just started to get interested in the one he got for Christmas, and I’ve been kicking myself for not getting one with a hand brake for him. We love the greenway near our house for bike rides….but this summer we’ll be getting back to the Cape Cod bike paths that we haven’t been on in years–can’t wait!ReplyCancel

    • Jess - Awesome! Cape Cod does sound amazing!ReplyCancel

  • Adrianne - My little is almost 18 months. I’m looking forward to getting a Woom 1 for him very soon. We’ll be riding on the Huckleberry biking path and through the woods at Pandapas Park, both in Blacksburg, VA. He’s small, so I’m hoping we can find a helmet that fits properly.ReplyCancel

    • Jess - Thanks so much for entering! This does sound like it would be a good helmet for him!ReplyCancel

  • Robyn V - We just ordered our first 2 Woom bikes (1 & 2)over the weekend…highly anticipating their arrival. Our girls can do about 3 miles right now so we do our greenway trail and simple mountain trails. Heading to the Creaper Trail this summer.ReplyCancel

Smartphones are a full-time traveler’s best friend, providing music, navigation, email, social media, a camera, and occasionally even phone calls. Of all the places we put our phone on a daily basis, there are two more important than most. We have a car mount that holds the phone in a good place for navigation, and […]
