First Real Bike Ride in a LONG Time!

It's been too difficult to post about biking when I haven't been able to participate but yesterday I got to Bike with my Boys on a Brompton in Bois de Boulogne. I was thinking B-B-B as I sang with joy the whole time, and I was not the only one loving it!

I have a Backlog of posts to share, but wanted to share a photo with people I know would understand my elation!

I ride a folding bike too - but mine is full-size, so I'm able to put a regular child seat on the back. It's so great though, since I have such limited storage space.

How adorable!
Glad to see you got a chance to ride!

What kind of bike seat is that?

OK - so this is definitely one more reason to love the Brompton! If only there was a child seat compatible with the front luggage system...

...an idea is forming!

Charlotte said...

Karl, yes this completely precludes any front luggage as the baby turns with the handlebars and so bumps his feet against the non-turning Carradice bag. We're back to the bag on the back for any luggage.

Brenda, this is a Bobike Mini bike seat. I will be posting a review on it shortly. (I hope!)

Glad to see you riding. The Brompton baby portaging system is delightful!

Brenda said...

Nice! That's the one I have but we haven't started using it yet. Hopefully this weekend!

I ride with one of my boys on a co-pilot. I've seen those front seats, which seam more fun for the boys than the rear seat. How is it having a boy on the front, considering his weight?

I am also excited to ride the bicycle like you to doing it. Taking a look at these images you guys seems like you riding with lots of joy. I feel like you’ve really enjoyed riding with your boy at B...B...B... :)
