Bicycle with kids

Do you commute with your bicycle with your kids? what are the hassles and any tips?

Kirsten Kawasaki
No. But we do bike around on the weekends with them - only in areas with nice, wide bike paths though.

It really depends on where you live. Just plan your outings well and ride when there's less traffic.

I used to bike for my commute. I never had any problem but to be honest, it really depends on where you live. I felt comfortable when we were living in Amsterdam....clearly marked bike lanes and practically everyone is on a bike. But in LA? I wouldn't dare!

I used to ride my bike 4-5x a week before kids. When my daughter was old enough, I got the Thule RideAlong. It's very safe, has a quick release, recline, padded harness, reflector, PLUS it's beautiful.

To be honest, I never felt comfortable commuting with her on the bike. I always rode on the sidewalk and never went past 5 blocks. Too scared!
