Totcycle | Family Biking

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

Not caring how much our bikes weigh since 2008.

« Family Bike Expo »

Today's Kidical Mass to the beach was lovely, ride report to follow when I get pictures, but just a quick heads up that tomorrow is a Family Bike Expo down near Seward Park:

The 3rd Annual Family Bike Expo is coming up on Sun., June 14, from 11am to 4pm at the Ferdinand Street End Park just north of Seward Park on Lake Washington Blvd. and organizer Morgan Scherer could use some help.

Join local families who use their bikes as their sole means of transportation and try out different family biking setups, including a Madsen bike, an Xtracycle, a Big Dummy, a trail-a-bike, a front-loading child seat, a bike trailer, a tandem, a electric-assist recumbent pedicab, a recumbent trailer bike and more. There will also be maps and route information, free blinkies and snap bracelets, first-aid kits and coloring books for the kids.

Email Morgan if you can help.

I'm so sad I just heard about this, as it would have been most excellent to route Kidical Mass down Lake Washington Blvd to this event. Last year's expo was great - all sorts of high occupancy velos, nice people answering questions about their family bikes, cheap helmets, test rides, Gypsie's high-zoot red-all-over stokemonkeyed xtracycle with the foam dice, and more. Go!

Oh no! What a fantastic idea, everything all in one place -- and we have a birthday party in that exact same timeframe. Hugely disappointed!

I am new to your blog. I appreciate the postings regarding front seats. It was very helpful. I thought front seats were for small kids and my 17 month old would be close to being too big. How wrong I was. I tried out the weeride at the Family Bike Expo and love a front seat. I have a feeling we will be purchasing the Bobike. The Family Bike Expo was so great and very helpful. I hope there will be a Kidical Mass in the southend in the near future. We are new to family biking and look forward to reading more on this blog.

The things you shared regarding children scooter. But please do share some pictures of scooter models that you own. Do you provide 3-wheel scooter too?
