I will never forget my first bike—it was a yellow Schwinn with pink ribbons around the handlebars. My patient father showed me how to cycle around our suburban New York neighborhood when I was seven! New Jersey is a very active state for bike enthusiasts of all ages. Below is a list of bike shops in New Jersey that sell bikes for girls and boys of all ages—with and without training wheels. And, of course, do NOT forget your helmets when bike riding with family and friendly. Safety first; no exceptions!

So BYOC--Bring Your Own Chairs--munchies, blankets, and savor the magic of the movies. And for more summer awesomeness, check out our New Jersey Kids Summer Activities Guide.
