Transporting the kids via bicycle has increased in popularity among DC urbanites. We are taking a look at various various types of carriers and bikes available and the pros and cons of each.
Functions to Consider Функции для рассмотрения
Adaptability Адаптивность (приспособляемость)
Will your bike grow and evolve as your family does? Your child may be in a child seat now, but that will change sooner than you think. Choosing a bike that will grow and adapt with your family will mean avoiding Craigslist to sell your toddler carrier so you can replace it with a young child hauler in the near future. This way, you can easily sell the accessories (e.g. the child bike seat) and keep the bike.
Ride-ability Возможности поездок
Whether you are an experienced rider or not, some of the solutions below are far from the typical bicycle experience. For example, while some riders appreciate a cargo bike for the low center of gravity and ability to see kids in front of them, others feel that any hill can feel like pedaling a boat up a mountain.
Park-ability Возможности хранения (парковки)
If you do not have a garage or other accessible bike storage (no carrying these up three flights of stairs), some of the options below may create a challenge. The width and length of the different designs will also be factors in your ability to find parking and secure your bike.
