So, today I bought a Wee rides bike seat to go on my mtb, the one where they sit between saddle and handle bars. Sadly Halfords don't stock cycle helmets in store which are small enough for a 1 yr old, so had to go to toys r us. All sorted now and excited!

I was planning for my wife, son and I to go out for a ride tomorrow, but since it's gusts up to 48 mph, maybe we won't!

My steel bike has just got a lot heavier!

I used to love taking my son out on the back of my bike - he's 11 now and bike daft we now spend most Saturday afternoons Mountain Biking.

Have fun.

I can still see mini's face when I first put him in one of those and wheeled him back and forth across the garden (garden not big enough to ride in).

For the next (about) three years all he had to do was see the bike with the Wee Ride for it to raise a smile.

Watch out for when he's big enough to reach the handlebars with his feet though, and realise there's fun to be had pushing one side or the other.

I have to say I never bothered with a helmet for him, it really got in the way.

I've posted before about how much I enjoy going out with my lad whose just turned 3 on the wee ride. Luckily I can get onto a canal path within a mile or so from the house.
My back pack contains nappies, wipes, milk, bread for the ducks and some beer money as we can get to a pub within 7 miles or so!!
Enjoy it while you can as I reckon I'll only get another 12 months out of it.

Got a weehoo for my son last year he absolutely loved it, then again so did I, can't say the same about the bikes brakes though, him having the ability to pedal isn't such a good thing when I want to stop lol

Now that's a boy who looks like he's having a good time. Isn't it wonderful?

I love the way I get instructed to get back on if I get off for any reason. Oldest son used to pat the seat in a wordless 'mush!'.

this has made me really want to take my daughter out now, I was looking at the wee ride a couple of days ago.
Can anyone suggest a child carrier for a road bike? I'd love to take my daughter out in a few months (she's 10months now) but the wee ride probably wouldn't work because of the riding position of a road bike.
