There are many options for traveling by bicycle with your children. Should you choose a child bike seat, bike trailer, or a cargo bike? Making the best choice for your needs can be a bit confusing. We have created this primer series to help you choose the best set-up for your needs when traveling with children by bicycle.
(This part is intended as an overview of some general considerations that will help you to select a suitable bike for the job, and examines some of the benefits and challenges of choosing the bike over the car. Part Two (coming soon) will examine the various choices available for meeting your needs, including different bike styles and accessory options such as a child bike seat, bike trailer, cargo bikes, and gear carriers. Your best choice will be influenced by your needs, which you will better understand by reading (this) Part One.)
Child Bike Seat Alternative: Yuba Mundo with Monkey Bars make it safe and fun to carry kids by bike!
British filmmakers have released a beautiful new film, Beauty and the Bike, about the experiences of British and Dutch women riding bikes and feeling the empowerment and freedom that bicycles bring to all our lives. Yuba Bicycles is proud to announce that a Mundo was used in the filming. You can see a clip of the Mundo being used to carry a photographer, who sits on the back and shoots photos of the beauties as they pedal behind him. We urge all Mundo fans to check out the film. This project shows the ability of the Mundo to get work done. Here’s a short clip of the Mundo used on Beauty and the Bike
If there are other filmmakers out there who have used a Mundo to make a movie, please contact us. Even if you’re not a moviemaker, send us your photos and film clips that show how you’re using your Mundo to accomplish tasks that previously required a car or truck.
