Tots on bikes, kids as cargo, family cycling, and other high-occupancy velo goodness.

« Bikes Make Life Better »

Here are some celebrational bike videos that made me happy this year, starting with the brand new "Bikes Make Life Better" from peopleforbikes.org:

And don't miss our new, homegrown promotional, "Will You Ride with Sophie?", from Cascade:

And if you haven't seen it yet, don't miss "Me and My Bike" from earlier this year:

These videos are how promoting bikes should work. All joy, easy on the enviroguilt, save the safety lecture for another day. Speaking of which, "The Joy of Cycling" poster is not to be missed, for those of us who grew up with a certain book on their parents' bookshelves.

Nice videos and yes, you are right, bikes are a great thing and very useful in poor countries.

Fantastic site, this. I have been obsessing about how to transport a baby (my first!) on a bicycle and see I have gone through a similar process to the one you've been through.

Thanks for the great videos! Good to find your site as well. My wife and I don't plan to have kids but we are trying to move our town towards having car free areas and generally biking more- this will be a good resource to point families to.
Cheers!

Bike is really essential for low-income groups as they do not have much money to buy a car. Bike is essential for doing day to day activities. One should always prefer to buy new branded bikes as more advanced features is added in new bikes. So new bike would make life better through comfort riding.

Commuting by bike is easier in city because of traffic jam, so people prefer to drive bike in cities. Fuel consumption are less in bike compared to car so people can save money on fuel. Generally pollution are less in bike compared to car so use of bike will reduce environment pollution. Always prefer to buy new bike than old bike because riding a new bike brings a better feeling.
