Family Cycling Blog:

More and more parents and kids are discovering the recreational, transportation and health benefits of cycling together.

Family Cycling is fun.

And the fun can start young. We discuss the family adventures, the gear that families use, and how to use it safely.

Turn kids from passive, parent-powered passengers into active cyclists themselves as they grow.

Submit Your Family Cycling Photos

Cycling together as a family can be more fun and meaningful than the most epic tour. And the photos you take make irresistible blog fodder -- and we mean that in a really good way.

We love to collect photos of the products that make bikes part of the family. Send us anything from that photo of your child first learning to ride, to that photo of the whole family out on a cycling. Submit your family cycling photos here and we'll let you know when we publish them.



Scott’s Trailer-Cycle Build

Another inventive Burley Trailer-Cycle / Adams Trail-A-Bike inspired build!  Here is Scott’s version:

I modified a Bob Yak trailer fork to use as a trail-a-bike attachment which allows my son to ride next to me on the trails, then I can re-attach him when we get to busier areas. I’ll be adding some pannier racks and a detachable wheel for more cargo capacity. This is not quite the finished product yet, as I will also be adding a custom paint-job and a few other accessories.

Check out our other customer attempts at trailer-cycle builds from our past post!

BUT… Here comes Betty Buzzkill (on a Friday nonetheless!!).  We love our customers’ inventiveness, but we are huge advocates of the child safety standards set in place.  We’d therefore recommend sticking to the use of professionally manufactured trailer-cycles.  Burley, in fact, recently introduced their exciting and versatile new Burley Plus Trailercycle Conversion Kit which easily converts Trailer-Cycles into high-quality free-standing children’s bikes.  And! Burley trailers and trailer-cycles are now 10% off! at BikeKidShop.  As long as we’re going down this road, don’t forget your helmets either!  If for no other reason, make it a fashion statement kiddos!

May we recommend our fun Sunlite Squeeze Horns as an accessory in-the-running?!
