Family biking - what are your options?

There are some things that you have to give up when you have kids (sleep comes to mind for starters!). But how about when it comes to your favourite active pursuits like biking? Thankfully your kids can come right along with you, provided you invest in the proper gear for every age.

When your kids are very small, there are different ways to tote them around on a bike. A front carrier is a good option, as are both rear-mounted seats and attachable trailers. Once your kids have graduated to nearly preschool age, they may be ready for a bike tag-a-long - a one-wheeled structure that attaches to the back of your bike - or even another option that connects their bike to yours.

Need some advice?


Any and all of these options come with their own weight and age restrictions and recommendations. And as your kids move from one piece of equipment to the next, it’s important they understand not only rules of the road, but exactly what is the right safety gear - especially when it comes to helmets.
