Child Carriers and Trailers

One of the best ways to get kids hooked on cycling is to start them early and share the joy with them.  Even before a child begins riding his or her own bike, you can take them with you on your rides.


There are three main ways to take a child with you on your bicycle: bike-mounted child seats, pedal trailer bikes and child trailers.

 

Bike Mounted Child Carriers

Child Bike Seats are a practical solution for toting your child around.  Whether you use one of the rear passenger bike child carriers like the CoPilot Limo or Taxi or a front mounted bike child seats like the Thule RideAlong Mini and the iBert Safe-T-Seat, it is simple to carry your little one along on your bike rides.  Most child bike seats will have additional mounts available, so that you can easily switch between bicycles.

Pedal Trailer Bikes

Pedal trailers and trail-a-bikes are great way to teach your child the joys of riding a bike. In both instances, you control the balance and steering, while your little one contributes to the pedaling. Even though pedal trailers and trail-a-bikes are similar in concept, there are some key differences between the two. Generally speaking, children sit higher up in a trail-a-bike and are required to pedal, whereas the pedal trailer features a lower center of gravity, and gives children the option of pedaling, making it more suitable for younger children.
