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.

Tom’s Kid Karrier

Check out Toms kid karrier a.k.a. a customized Xtracycle. You don’t necessarily need to have a pull behind kid trailer to haul the little ones around. Tom used his fully out fitted Xtracycle with Magic Carpet and all and added 3/4″ thick walled copper tubing and wrapped PVC.

This is a great Xtracycle conversion, using low cost materials that can be found at the local hardware store. Many extras can be added to the Xtracycle to customize it for almost any need. Tom is using this for three kids now, in a few years, two, then maybe just one will fit on there, but for now it works great for three, and I love the roll bar look. Thanks for the photos Tom and great job!

    Awesome! I have a 2-kid setup with REI Canoe Seats strapped onto my board and made extra-secure with cam straps. I use two more cam straps as seat belts. When I started riding, my 2yo was a little too wild to be able to sit without some osrt of secure restraint. :-)

    But this looks pretty cool for older kids!
