If you are asking this question: “how can I get my boy to exercise?” I think I have an easy answer for you, get him a Mongoose Montana Boy’s Mountain Bike 24 Inch Wheels. It is the ideal way to encourage him to get out of the house and to exercise in a fun way.
You are not going to tell him that, of course! He will simply think you thought it was time he had a bike, which it probably is. A boy must have a bike, and if you can ride with him, even better, especially for safety’s sake!
Good gears are very important in a bike for a little boy. You want him to learn how to work the gears in the correct way from the very start. If the gears give him problems it may discourage him from riding and that would really be a pity.
Another important factor to keep in mind is that the bike is going to have to take a certain amount of abuse from him. Boys of about nine to ten are still pretty rough and he is bound to throw it down more than once, so you need one that can stand up to it. I do not mean you do not have to teach him how to handle it properly, but you are not always around. So rather than waste your money on an inferior product, get a good one and make sure he can use it for at least two or three years until he has outgrown it.
It is very important that you teach him all the safety measures before you allow him to go out with the bike on his own. If you are fortunate enough to have lots of open spaces for him to ride, it is not so difficult, but in a city he will have to know how and where he is allowed to ride with it. The very best option, of course, is if you go riding with him. That way you can keep and eye on him.
So, get your boy a Mongoose Montana Boy’s Mountain Bike 24 Inch Wheels and instill a healthy love of exercise in him.
