We introduced you to the new kids bike company, Prevelo, a few weeks ago with our post on teaching kids how to change gears. Bergen, our 5.5 year old has been riding Prevelo’s Alpha Three for about 2 months now. He transitioned from a 16 inch bike, his first bike with pedals, this April to the 20″ Alpha Three.
The opportunity to partner with Prevelo came at the perfect time: Just when Bergen’s riding was starting to pick up again (after the rainy winter), and just when we realized he was looking over-sized and hunched over on his 16″ bike!
You’ll learn more in the sections to follow, but Bergen’s transition to a 20″ inch bike brought on a lot of new milestones. Because of his new riding capabilities, he started riding on streets with us, joined us on longer riding adventures, and even participated in an 11-mile ride with our city’s cycling club!
