Whether you have a city bike to be driven on the city roads, or a mountain bike that helps you go on mountain trails, a childs bike seat will prove to be an investment worth every dime of it. There would be a stage in your life when you would have kids. Good luck if you have one already, as having a kid is never short of fun. If you wish to extend the fun during your riding sessions, it is time you think of including your kid in this activity.
More than him enjoying the ride itself, he will for sure get an early initiation to bike riding. That said, you obviously can’t be holding the kid in one hand and drive the bike with the other. The other preposterous solution I have heard of is – Make the kid sit in the rear seat and drive along. Now, imagine how disturbing it would be for you to stop every five minutes to check if the child is doing fine. If fickle road and overhead conditions were not enough impediments to your biking activity, you would now have to stop every now and then to check if the kid is doing fine.
Put an end to all these nagging issues and invest some money to get a good childs seat installed on your bicycle. It surely wouldn’t take up a lot of space of your bicycle. Most importantly, it will allow you to drive your bike without having to worry too much about your child. The reason being – At all times, the kid would be in your sights, so you would have all chances to keep track of all what your kid is trying to do.
Some simple safety precautions do need to be followed here even in spite you installing the child’s bike seat. For example, if there be a time when you have to stop the bike, make sure you stop it on a rest. This will ensure both you and your kid would be safe during the biking activity. Of course, other precautions include your kid wearing a helmet while you are driving the bike and you staying off rather crowded roads. These safety precautions, if followed well, will ensure both you and your kid have a whale of a time during driving.
Most of these childs bike seats come for a price of $40-$80, depending on the features you want included in the childs seats. Some Internet sites offer excellent discounts if you purchase additional accessories from them. This surely is not a heavy price to pay, for an investment that can only be beneficial for you and your kid.
If you have a bike and you love riding, be sure to get a childs bike seat installed on your bike. It will allow you to enjoy your bike riding activity at all times. Having a kid thus will not deter you from going out on your regular biking escapades. All you then have to do is put the kid on the bike and zoom past empty roads.
