First of all let me say that this post is not meant to come across as a sanctimonious brag about how wonderful we are as a family that bikes. Sure, we are wonderful but we also have a lot of factors working in our favor that make getting around by bike an easy choice lots of the time. For example we live within a block of an excellent, flat bike path. I hate hills so I can guarantee that if our rides involved any kind of incline, I'd be a lot less inclined to bike. So while I'd encourage everyone to bike more and car less, I know it's not always easy. And before I polish my halo too brightly, I cannot begin to pretend that we are giving up our vehicle. We're not that hardcore! But we are trying to make a conscious choice bike as often as we can and for trips that we might not typically have thought of as bike trips (we biked to the movies the other day for example).

I had a lot of fun biking with my first child on a front bike seat. My daughter loved it and I liked having her in front of me. Today, I’m happy to say she is a wonderful biker thanks in no small part, to her Like-A-Bike and perhaps an early introduction to biking. For our family it is a way of living and we will use the bike as an active mode of transportation to get around in the city. We also enjoy biking just for fun.
