Buddy Pegs Helps You Be An Adventure Family

We believe raising children with a healthy relationship with outdoor adventure is the key to lifelong self-confidence, happiness, and connection.

Adventure [ ad-ven-cher ]:
an exciting experience or undertaking that is typically bold, sometimes risky.

Family [ famlē ]:
a social group made up of parents and their children

Adventure Family [ ad-ven-cher famlē ]:
Parents and children who enjoy exciting and bold experiences in nature, together.

We believe bicycles are more than they appear to be – they are the most amazing family adventure vehicles.

Whether you are a full on bike family or simple bike-curious, we want to help your family continue on your adventure!
