Review and giveaway- The Biking Board Game by Schwinn

*Disclosure: I received this game to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

My husband, Daniel, is a serious cyclist. The kind that rides his bike hundreds of miles from Seattle to Portland or Vancouver BC.  And the kids are starting to catch the biking bug as well. Sunny days typically find us at the park, where the kids love to race around paths on their bikes.  So they were very excited to receive a new board game that celebrates all things related to bicycles! The game is called The Biking Board Game and here's a bit about it, from the game's website:



The Biking Game is a multi-generational game that allows every member of the family to play together. Themed around the legacy of biking with one of the more iconic biking companies on the planet, Schwinn, the Biking Game promotes an active lifestyle while educating and inspiring a future generation of bikers.
The Biking Game was created to inspire families and bike enthusiasts to get outside and enjoy one of America’s greatest recreational activities together. The game is designed to grow with the player, starting at level one questions, which are primarily identification of basic bike parts and riding etiquette. As the players increase in their knowledge about biking culture they grow into the higher level questions. A fun & educational game where parents & children can race to see who can get their bike through multiple terrain and back home first.
I made the kids wait until Daniel was home to play the game and they were pretty much quivering with excitement by the time we were all ready to play. I really like that the game is easy to play and that the questions feature multiple levels of difficulty. It was easy to find questions that suited everyone's general knowledge level.  And we all learned a lot about bikes too! The kids wanted to play again and again and even pretended to play just with each other (they are not good enough readers to actually play on their own) once Mommy and Daddy had tapped out of playing.

I think this is a good game for families who  love the outdoors and biking and who want to test their knowledge of all things bicycle!

Good news- one lucky reader will win a copy of this game for him/herself. Open to US mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
