cycling with kids

{image source}

I just recently came across this picture on the facebook page of SkirtBike, a Romanian bike blog geared at women. How awesome is this bike? I have no idea what make or model it is (couldn’t find any information on it on the source site) and I don’t know how well it handles, but it sure looks like a great way to cart the little ones around.

I think what I love most about this image is that it shows how much innovation there is when it comes to biking with kids – trailers, bike seats, cargo bikes, this neat contraption pictured above – the options are plentiful. Find what works for you and give a try.

I’ve been loving our iBert bike seat and I plan on writing more about it soon; adjustements I’ve had to make, the pros and cons, etc. Ultimately, I love it because it speaks to our needs and it makes me want to get on my bike and ride around with C. as often as possible. It doesn’t feel like a chore or like a less desirable option to walking or driving.

What about you – do you bike with your kids? What kind of kid carting system do you prefer?

    Just wanted to leave a link to Taga Bikes. I think that is what is in the picture you posted. I just discovered it a few months ago, looks fantastic and makes me not so nervous for the day when my husband and I decide to go for it and have some kids.

    Not sure how it handles hills though, which is a big concern for me (I live in Seattle… at the top of a big hill).
