Our city has been developing and paving on the bike path for the last decade I believe. Honestly we have never walked or rode the entire loop but Eldest and Princess went on a short ride to Lock Nine and back. They rode together and had a cell phone in case of an emergency while on the bike path.
We do not suggestion children under the age of 12 ride without adults and definitely NOT without a buddy! Since they were familiar with the area and how to get to the bike path and back home I felt comfortable allowing them to go by themselves. I would love to ride as a family but we are still getting enough bikes in the correct sizes for everyone. Big Red and Lil’ Red do not ride without training wheels. Our goal this Summer is to help teach Big Red how to ride without training wheels so we can enjoy the bike path as a family!
Eldest is riding my 10-speed bike until we can repair his 10-speed to working order. Princess took these pictures with her Samsung Note 4 in order for me to have current pictures for this post. I love how my big kids can help participate in blogging and especially this #30Places30Days blog challenge.
The Piqua Bike Path goes along the Great Miami River winds through town by a few parks and ponds and connects with bike trails from other communities allowing an experienced cyclist to ride all the way to Dayton! The Linear Park comprises of 12 miles in total of paved pathway.
