Cycling with children: 4 - 10 Years

Although all children grow and develop differently, usually at around 4 years old your child will rapidly growing and might of out grown some forms of child transportation suitable for smaller children. There are still methods which allow you and your child to enjoy riding together at your pace. They are ;


Whilst every child will be ready to learn how to ride a bike at different times, usually from the age of 4 children become strong enough and ready to ride independently, we have a range for children’s bikes suitable for all ages. To view our range of children’s bikes please click here.

Rear mounted child seats

Between 4 - 6 your child may of grown or soon be growing out of a standard child seat. If you would still like to transport your child by a rear mounted child seat there are manufacturers who specialise in building heavy duty child seats.
These child seats are designed for carrying children over 6 years olds and up to 35 kilos.

We recommend and stock the GMG classic rear seat six years plus.

    Pros
  • Fits most bikes
  • Quickest and easiest way to carry children by bike
    Cons
  • With the child seat situated fairly high your bikes centre of gravity will be raised, this can lead to changes in the way your bike normally handles
  • Excited / wiggling children will affect the bikes handling
  • Depending on the size of your bike may limit rucksack space

Trailer Bike

A trailer bike is the rear end of a child’s bike that attaches onto another bike (including tandems). This allows your child to pedal, or freewheel their bike whilst being connected to the parent’s bike.

There are a variety of trailers bikes available with various fittings, we’ve found that some of the trailer bikes that attach onto the seat post of the adult bike sometimes leads to the child’s trailer bike leaning sideways and spoiling the enjoyment of the ride and compromising the child’s safety.

We recommend and stock the Roland Add+Bike trailer bike, these bikes attach to the rear pannier rack.
We also stock child seats which can be fitted onto the rack

  • Children can pedal as much or as little as they like whilst being towed.
  • Helps children to develop their riding skills
  • Additional Add + Bike can be fitted to other Add + Bike to tow 2 children
    Cons
  • Child cannot be allowed to ride any of the journey independently.
  • Children can pedal as much or as little as they like whilst being towed!

Child Trailers

Child trailers are fast becoming the favoured method for transporting children by bike; some trailers (depending on budget and manufacturer) can be converted from a bike trailer, to a push chair, to a push chair with jogging or skiing capacity. As some of these trailers can be used as push chairs (with relevant accessories) you are able to start using the trailer / pushchair when your child is very young. (Approximately 14 weeks old depending on trailer and your child’s development) When buying or enquiring about the best trailer for you we will of course be happy to offer our advice.

In addition to being able to use your trailer with child from a very young age, child trailers are robust and are designed to last for many years. Most Trailers will comfortably tow up to 45kg.

We recommend and stock Burley, Chariot and Croozer child trailers.

We also stock accessories available for child trailers, including additional hitches (what attaches the trailer to the bike), child slings (for very small babies), stroller and jogging kits and a variety of helmets suitable for all ages and head sizes.

    Pros
  • Can carry two children at once
  • Some trailers convert into push chairs allowing for your trailer to be used with your child from day 1
  • Can be used in addition to child seats
  • Centre of gravity is not affected
  • Most trailers are waterproof
  • Most trailers include generous storage facilities
    Cons
  • Unlike the passengers the trailers can get wet and dirty
  • Can be tricky to maintain conversations
