5 Summer Outdoor Activities to Help You Get More Fresh Air

The days are getting longer and the temperatures are creeping higher. This can only mean one thing: Summer is officially here!


It's time to shed the heavy layers, slather on the SPF, and put away the remote control for a while.


Today, we're sharing our top five summer outdoor activities that can help keep your family active. We might be social distancing for a while longer, but there are still plenty of ways to have fun!


1. Take a Family Bike Ride

Over the past few months, interest in cycling has surged. This attention is largely fueled by families looking for safe and enjoyable ways to spend time together outside.

Why not take the afternoon off and go on a family bike ride of your own? You can lead the way in our innovative Bolt Electric Bike!

Compact and lightweight, this bike even comes with a convenient carrying handle for easy transport. Just pack the helmets and snacks, and take off! 

Before you go, review these safety tips to plan the perfect family-friendly ride. Regular outings like these can help you get some fresh air and keep your sanity during these months at home!


2. Learn How to Hoverboard

Marty McFly's prediction holds true. Hoverboards are here to stay, and they're sleeker and better-equipped than ever before. 

To enjoy this thrill for yourself, learn how to ride one first. Then, invest in our Flash Hoverboard so you can keep practicing at home. One trip around the block on this futuristic gadget and you'll be hooked!


3. Plan a Picnic

Tired of running your hot oven and managing the never-ending pile of dirty dishes? Ditch the fuss and dine al fresco this summer by planning a simple family picnic.

Stick to an easy menu of finger foods and be sure to bring along plenty of water. Find a shady spot in a local park or recreational area and come home to a clean house and full bellies!


4. Take a Scooter to the Park

Looking for more active things to do during summer vacation? Why not take a scooter on your next outdoor outing?

Whether you've been riding for years or you're just starting out, there's a scooter out there for you. This activity helps riders learn how to balance, steer, stop, and navigate around hazards, enhancing their motor skills and building their confidence.

Adults will adore our Eris Electric Scooter, while kids will get a kick out of the eye-catching designs on our smaller models, such as this Jupiter Kick Scooter with LED lights!


5. Go Backyard Camping

You don't have to book a campsite and pack up the car to enjoy a device-free evening under the stars!

Set up a tent in the backyard and create a small campfire nearby. Roast marshmallows, learn the summertime constellations, and take turns telling stories.

The best part? Your own beds are only a few yards away if the bugs get too irksome or the ground feels too hard!
