Here a list of the best regions of Italy where bicycling. Have a look and discover where bike with your children.

Italy is one of the best places where bike, but not every destination is good if you think to bike with your children.

Below some tips to organize your travel and find the best regions.

Travelling with your bike it's fun, easy, convenient and environmentally-friendly.

The greatest benefit in family biking is quality time.

Some things to take care:

  • Adults generally have a better understanding of traffic.
  • Children are generally much quicker at picking up the bike handling skills.
  • The key here is instilling a respect for the complexity and potential danger of traffic without instilling fear.
  • A child's ability to judge speed and distance is generally much less developed than that of an adult.
  • Other key challenges for children include more limited peripheral vision and a longer time required for focusing their eyes on an object.

Tips and Equipment to Safe Riding:

  • Helmets are standard equipment for everyone who rides.
  • Ride single file when you're on the road or a bike path.
  • Keep the kids in front of you.
  • Don't forget the first aid kit.
  • Pack a pump, patch kit, tire levers, and a crescent wrench.
  • A spare tube is a nice extra.
