Familybike Seattle is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit that decreases barriers to bicycling for families of all income levels. We at Familybike Seattle believe that biking as a family increases our individual, family, and societal quality of life, while at the same time moving toward sustainable lifestyles and communities. It’s fun and wonderful...but there are many many barriers to getting out on a bike...especially with kids! And that’s where we come in. We’d like to support you on your journey, wherever it may take you, by providing experiential information on: What kinds of equipment is available, Safety concerns and strategies, and How other families are successfully biking their way through life!
In addition to special events such as the Seattle Disaster Relief Trials, Familybike Seattle provides support for familiest interested in bicycling in three main ways.
Workshops: In depth intros to family riding, these 3-hour workshops happen once a month and are a great way to get the information and inspiration we all need to get on the road with our kids. We’ll cover safety, equipment options, hills/traffic/route selection, rain/cold, strategies for your specific situation, and more. The last half hour of the seminar is a mini-Family Bike Expo so you get to try out different rigs. At the workshop you have the opportunity to make biking goals for your family, and receive support from the group in achieving your goals.
Subsidiz Bike Rentals: The rental fleet is designed to give folks a chance to try out a family bike for a week at a time to see how it works in your life. Or rent one for a visiting friend so you can bike together!
Kidical Mass Rides: Kidical Mass is all about community...riding together to some fun location, chatting, kids playing, seeing how other parents do things, enjoying a mellow ride at a leisurely pace (no one ever left behind!) on Greenway routes.
