We own only one car, and we bike wherever we can. Living in California’s Silicon Valley, where the weather is beautiful for most of the year and car traffic is ridiculous, it’s an easy transportation solution. The one catch is that we have to be able to bike with kids. The Tyke Toter is my new favorite solution (disclosure: we were sent this seat to review, but I received no other compensation).
Looking for an Easy Way to Bike with Kids? Check Out the Tyke Toter!
Lightweight, safe, and easy to install, this is a brilliantly minimalist approach to biking with children. It installs in minutes, and your child is safely enclosed in your own arms as you bike. Since the seat sits right in the middle of the bike frame, having your child on board doesn’t impact the bike’s balancing at all.
I also really like that you put the child on the seat when you are already on the bike yourself. With rear-mounted seats, you have to buckle your child in first before climbing on yourself. With the Tyke Toter, your child is either in between your arms or safely on the ground.
This seat fits beautifully on Mike’s road bike as well as my beach cruiser style bike. A quick release mechanism makes it easy to take the seat on and off.
I got a very brief clip of this bike seat in action. That’s Anna saying, “Now can we go?” that you hear. She loves biking this way!
Anna waves at as many pedestrians and cars on the way. A lot of people smile and wave back!
