My Huffy Bike & Scooter Review + HUGE Sale!
Growing up, some of my fondest memories are riding my bike with my family–all of us together–laughing and just bonding on the street and trail.
Now that I have my son, Ian, I want him to have those same memories to cherish when he gets older. But, you know, first he needs to have a good bike! (Or, in his case, a scooter.)
That’s where Huffy comes in: Huffy has been making top-quality bikes, scooters, and ride-ons for men, women, and children (and all the accessories you need to go with them, from helmets to elbow pads) for more than 125 years! (They also have service centers located nationwide, so you can keep your bike in good condition for years to come.)
Last month (May) Huffy partnered with Together We Rise (TWR) to donate bikes to foster kids! (TWR is a nonprofit organization that helps kids in foster care.)
Huffy is also offering 20% off any two (or more) eligible bikes or scooters when you use the code JUNESAVE–so you can finally get your family bikes and spend time together on the trails!
I got the Women’s Alpine Mountain Bike for me and an Inline Scooter for Ian. Here are our thoughts on each of them after a few test rides!
First up, the Women’s Alpine Mountain Bike.
My bike provided a nice, smooth ride. I haven’t ridden a bike much–except for a spin bike–since I was a child, but it was easy to jump on this Huffy bike and feel comfortable immediately. I also appreciated the padded seat. I was worried that since I hadn’t ridden in a while, I’d be feeling it the next day, but nope, no issues.
I was also reminded of just how much I miss riding a bike! I am sure I will use it to ride around in our neighborhood a lot. Also, instead of hopping in the car to drive down to the mailboxes in our community, I can jump on my bike and get a little exercise, which I love.
Next up, an Inline Scooter.
Once I ordered it, Ian asked every day until it arrived if it was here. Every package that came to the door he assumed was his new scooter!
Ian has ridden a manual scooter for years, but this electric scooter provided a whole new level of fun. He loved the fact that he could ride it manually or allow the battery to do the work. It makes it more likely that it will get a lot of use, too: if he gets tired after riding it manually, he can race home with the battery. Or if he’s used up the battery, he can keep riding it manually.
I’m sure that we’re both going to get a lot of use out of our new Huffy bike and scooter.
Ian’s best friend lives in our neighborhood a few streets away, and I always felt silly driving to his house for play dates, but walking would take a while. I’m thrilled we both now have an alternative mode of transportation–that’s also healthier for us.
And, now that I have a bike and Ian has a new scooter, getting to and from the school bus will be a breeze. Every day (if the weather permits) Ian would ride his manual scooter to and from the bus stop. In the mornings, I let him ride his scooter because he would walk so slow that I’d be afraid he’d miss the bus. But in the afternoon when he got off the bus, he would practically race his manual scooter down the street and I’d be sprinting behind hauling his backpack. Now that I have a bike, I can ride alongside him. (Much easier for me!)
Finally, I love that we have another fun, family-friendly outdoor activity we can do together. Now I just need to get a Huffy bike for my husband, and we are all set!
Let me know: do you and your family ride bikes together often? Where are your favorite bike trails? Do you have a Huffy bike that you’re eyeing? Or maybe you have other healthy, family bonding activities that you love. Feel free to share in the comments below!
