Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!

This week, we’ve been thinking about the way biking fits in with families. Bikes are mostly a solo activity, even when you’re riding with others. One person, one bike, unless your partner doesn’t ride. Once you have kids, they tend to get left out of your riding activities, or else you have to give up the bike and replace it with an SUV.

We started with some great stories about people whose dads encouraged them to ride, as well as those who didn’t. We then looked at the controversial topic of whether it’s okay for kids to ride pillion, and found some discussions putting forward all sides of the argument.  For those who want to take kids with them but don’t want them on the back of the bike, there’s always the option of a sidecar, and we found some beautiful retro sidecars made by Liberty.

To end off the week, we gave you some tips on how to honor your dad for Father’s Day. You can do better than a cheap card and a tie – right?
