How to choose the right bike trailer for children?
Here are some factors to consider when buying your first bike trailer. First, you need to choose according to the type of use and activity you will engage in. Do you need a trailer solely for leisurely rides with your children or for engaging in sports activities with the trailer? Do you need to transport two children at once? It is also important to consider the age, weight, and size of the child or children to ensure safe transportation.
How to choose the right bike seat for children?
The child bike seat is usually located at the back of your bike, but some models are also designed for the front. Unlike children's trailers, bike seats take up much less space when not in use.
It is generally installed on the stem of your bike with an attachment system. It allows you to keep an eye on your child at all times during outings. The weight of the child being concentrated towards the front facilitates your pedaling, providing better stability. However, it is important to be vigilant as the front seat requires some adaptation in maneuvering the handlebars.
It allows for better use of the handlebars with more space for movements. If your child is in a rear seat, they can bring along their favorite toy without any danger to your riding. The rear child seat requires some adaptation as the weight of the child located at the back could destabilize your balance on the bike.
At what age can my child use a bike seat?
According to the Société de l'Assurance Automobile du Québec, the child must be at least 12 months old. Before this age, the neck muscles are not strong enough to support their head in the event of an accident. The child must be able to sit independently. The helmet must be properly fitted to their head.
