The following is a guest post from Victoria Huizinga of Snail Pace Transformations.
I have loved bike riding since I got my first red banana seat bike back in kindergarten. In fact I did not even get my driver’s license until I was very pregnant at the age of 21 and the doctor told me I could not drive a newborn around on a bike.
Naturally this meant that I could not wait until my children were old enough to join me on bike rides. One thing I noticed right away however was that biking with children is a whole lot harder than biking on your own.
I can’t go at my own pace and it often feels like I have been divided into 3 extra pieces that I am trying to keep from getting hurt.
However over the years as a mom with kids on bikes I have discovered a few tips that allow me to bike with my children with a safe level of sanity.
