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.



Tandem Wheelie and Trailer Train

I love wheelies. I’m not so good at them anymore, but I’m a sucker for them.

Last night, I had a dream that I was doing a wheelie on an adult tricycle. Please leave your psychoanalytical theories in the comments.

Brown Cycles of Grand Junction Colorado makes KidzTandems, which are tandem bikes with the stoker position in front, and the captain position in the back. I’ve seen these before, but never got the point. Then I saw this:

I get it. I totally get it now.

I’m imagining a small child, catapulted into the air, but cropped out of the photo on the advice of a lawyer.

Also on Brown’s gallery of customer pictures is this photo of trailer daisy-chaining taken to the extreme, with a bike child trailer coming in as the caboose:
