Photo Essay: Babes on Bikes
Written by Anna Fahey, Senior Communications Strategist, Sightline.org
My daughter will turn three this year, and we just enrolled her in preschool! With all our childcare at home to date, we’ve been lucky to avoid lots of extra running around with the kid. So, no sooner had we signed little Audrey up for preschool than we began to fret about the logistics of getting her to and fro — without royally complicating our lives.
It’s a bit too far to walk, and since I try to commute as often as possible by bike, it seemed counterproductive to go the few miles by car. What would I do with the car? Drive back home and then hop on my bike? I don’t think so! Drive to work and pay to park downtown? No way!
So, I started to investigate my options for conveying my babe by bike — it appears to be the most convenient and sensible solution.
I asked other parents what works for them and for tips about equipment, safety, and getting started. I also asked for photos — and they flooded in, along with all kinds of inspiring insights about the joys of cycling with your kids!
