Taking The Lead Together is a series of interviews with bicycle industry executives, non-profit leaders, pro cyclists, and families just like yours who are celebrating kids on bikes and inspiring families to get off the couch... and out for a ride.
The series was created from our new children’s picture book Taking The Lead that follows loveable animal characters along a journey to open a local bicycle shop and inspire their town to ride.
We recorded over 25 interviews at the 2018 Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA and will be releasing more each week!
We know you are tired when you come home from work or after a chaotic day, and the notion of loading up bikes, snacks and such to get to the trailhead or a safe riding area seems overwhelming, but the rewards you get when riding with your child outnumber anything else.
The added time you put in to make it happen will pay off in more ways than can be counted. Even old dogs can learn new tricks, so get out there with your child and look for those new tricks!
At Buddy Pegs, we envision a world where the kids of today become the joyful and inspiring leaders of tomorrow. Leaders who not only lead on a global scale but also leaders who act locally to guide their communities day to day.
We believe kids who grow up with outdoor adventure, and a close relationship with the adults in their lives, are more likely to change the world for the better.
Each bike with training wheels displayed on your sales floor says something to EVERY customer who walks in: Training wheels are a standard part of learning to ride. They're normal.
This is wrong! We need to change this.
Listen, this is not T-ball where propping up the baseball on a pilon helps to develop a proper swing. Using training wheels to learn to ride is like using a golf tee to teach a kid to hit homers.
