    Source of inspiration:

    I was reading today about a family that took their 2-year-old and their 2-month-old (!) on a 27-week-long trip from Zurich to Casablanca, totalling 10,100 km. (About 6,000 miles.) (!!!!!) LOTS of mountain climbing. They look like pretty fit people, too.

    And: the mother was breastfeeding (but they had to ride at daybreak on hot days because the milk was not to the baby's taste otherwise).

    Pretty impressive stuff. Not many pictures though. But here they are with all their gear:


    and a shorter article in English is here: http://www.forces.gc.ca/site/commun/...07/1207_04.pdf

    Helmets are quite bad for babies that age, way too heavy for their little head. You want to be on the safe side, but obviously you are. Get out there and enjoy!

    With the blessings of our pediatrician, I started with my younger son when he was just shy of 3 months old, putting him in the infant car seat, strapped in rear-facing in the Burley. My older son sat in the Bobike seat on the bike. I stayed off the busy streets, and tried to avoid any obvious big bumps.

    I'm glad you got out there for a ride!

    DD is 11 months - we have a Kettler Flipper seat on the back of a bike - a Jamis Coda bought specially to tote her around.

    The helmet thing is an issue. I can't seem to find a helmet small enough to fit her. I found a really small one through REI (smallest I could find!) and it still falls over her face. So (eek) we ride without it for now. I feel like a bad parent but I am confident we're going to be fine.

    She loves it. Please don't flame me.

    That is a lovely and cool bikebabypram. Maybe in 2-3 years we'll see a couple here in bigger North American cities.

    I agree the best bike inventions do tend to come from Europe first.

    these are very popular here. Safe, handy and the local bike shops take them back when the kids are too big.

    This is so true. When I was a kid, we rode in the back of pickup trucks and played in the woods all day long--"Don't come back until dinner!"

    But nowadays the kids in my neighborhood don't leave their yard and ride around on electrically powered "vehicles".

    So way to get out there!

    I think my daughter was 3mos old when she began her Burley rides. We found her the tiniest helmet ever, and strapped in her carseat. With no car, she was ususally well protected by the laundry, or groceries, or whateve else I was transporting at the time. I didn't think twice about the safety, it was pure necessity.
    Be yourself, to the extreme!

    Such a cute topic. Definitely one of my to-do-list once my baby boy is born.
