Since I’ll be stuck at home with the baby, I’ve been thinking about buying a bicycle and fitting it with a bicycle rack so that I can go places with the little girl.
Many people cycle around these parts and a few of my friends cycle too, I wouldn’t need to move out of our current apartment – I can just cycle to the wet market every morning after the boy goes to school 😀
Here’s what the Bell COCOON 500 Deluxe Child Carrier looks like at the back of a bicycle.
The child will be as securely strapped as she is to a 5-point harness car seat.
I love to ride a bicycle especially if there are no hilly areas – it’s nice to feel the wind in your hair.Bell COCOON 500 Deluxe Child Carrier
Plus, it’s a great way to get around and it’s environmentally-friendly 😀
Other brands are:
1. Schwinn Deluxe Child Carrier (US),
2. Peg Perego Orion Blue/Red Front Mount Child Seat (European brand – remember their famous baby strollers),
3. Topeak Babyseat II with Disc Mount Rack and
4. the Thule RideAlong Child Bike Seat and Thule RideAlong Child Bike Seat which are more expensive.
A used made in China bike costs about RMB300+ while an imported brand costs about RMB600+.
The bike rack will set us back at least US$59-100 (unless I can find a used one in excellent condition) but all in, the total cost is cheaper than moving out of our current apartment.
IF I do get the bike, I’ll have to keep it a secret from the boy or he’ll definitely demand to be toted around at the back of the bike too!
I could probably only do that during the weekends when Hubby is around to take over the little girl.
Wish me luck!
