If you’re relying on your bike to get places then it’s very likely at some point you’ll need something that can carry passengers.
When you have a child, or two, it’s time to reconfigure your bike a bit. One of the most convenient methods for carrying a number of passengers- big or small- as well as groceries or luggage, is a cargobike (or a workbike or transport bike), like the Bakfiets. But these are expensive and require a bit of parking space.
Since I have very little space in my apartment stairwell, I can’t upgrade to a cargo bike, but there are alternatives to adding seats to your wheels. In this video, I took baby #1 for a ride to the park and at 8 and a half months pregnant, began to scout options for a bike for three.
We also have a video demo of the Bakfiets, as well as one on cargobikes and other specialty bikes and video cycling blogs on A pregnant bike commute through Barcelona and on transporting furniture by bike.
