National Bike Month At Walmart – With $25 GC Giveaway

Walmart Bikes Banner

Did you know that tomorrow is the first-ever National Bike to School Day? I didn’t, prior to yesterday. My oldest son’s school is far too far to ride a bike to, and has major roads along the way. If we lived closer, or in a different type of area, I’d have no problem with him riding his bike to school. When I was his age, actually from childhood into late teens, I loved to ride my bicycle. Bicycle riding was a way to get around, and provided a sense of both fun and freedom. My favorite bike was the last one, and I think the one I had the longest. It was a beige ten speed. I went everywhere on that thing! Lately I have actually been thinking about bike riding again, as a form of exercise. I have no doubt that I’d start shopping at Walmart if I were looking for a bike. We’ve bought most of the boys bikes there because of their selection and price. It’s just a great one-stop shop for bikes and accessories. Here’s an example of some of the deals on bikes and accessories going on right now at Walmart and

  • An assortment of girls and boys bikes starting at $58
  • Several bikes available only at Walmart including the Kent Super 32-inch Cruiser for $199 and Girls 20-inch Schwinn-Quality Spirit Bike for $99

  2. My best biking memory would be of my mom surprising me with a brand new bike on my birthday when I was like 8 or 9. It was purple, with a banana seat, tassles on the handlebars, the colored spokes and to top it off, the white basket with little flowers on I loved that bike and rode it up and down the street all day. My mom was always so generous to us kids, she was awesome! I don’t have a bike now but if I did I would like it to be purple again. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  3. My favorite biking memory is biking with my husband as newlyweds many years ago and my current bike is blue!

  4. Wow, I wish I had known about this before. What a fabulous idea! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier this week! Now following you on Twitter.

  5. I remember your riding. I member to this day you didn’t get home in time and I got frantic that something bad had happened. I had your father take to the roads to find you–incidentally safe on your bike reading a book.

  6. I have fond memories of my sis giving me rides on her bike.
    My bike is white and it’s a rebuilt Schwin.
    Thank you.

  12. My favorite biking memory are from when I used to BMX race, all of the out of state races were the best.. If I had a bike currently I’d like silver

  13. In the summertime, that’s pretty much all we did – ride our bikes (banana seat and basket of course!) around the neighborhood. Up at dawn, out the door, meet up with friends, bike riding – good memories! I have a black bike now…we have been talking about getting my 5 year old a bike soon!

  14. I remember riding with my sisters while we lived in the country side, it was super fun. I’d like black color.

  16. I don’t have a bike now, but as a kid I loved my pink bike. I remember riding with my friends down the street.

  17. I remember how hard it was for me to learn to ride a bike. My mom actually stopped a stranger to help me learn. He actually taught me to ride, and I really loved it. (You can tell, this was a looong time ago- no one would do that now.

  18. Favorite memory is from childhood. I could ride within a 2 mile area of my neighborhood and felt such freedom in doing so.
