One of my little dreams came true last night when a neighbor was selling her husband's bike and Schwinn kiddie trailer. I have always wanted to do family bike rides with one of these, but my husband and I went to look at them when I was pregnant with my oldest and I thought we could just never afford to spend that kind of money on it. I live in the Midwest, we only have so many bike riding months out of the year.
So I got my husband a bike and the trailor for $125.00 and they are brand new! I ordered myself a bike online last night. We're going for our first family bike ride next weekend! I can't wait!
So would you put helmets on your kids in a bike trailer? I looked at the picture and it seemed like over kill, then again....I've never worn a helmet in my life. We don't even have motorcycle helmet laws here so literally I have never had a helmet on while riding a bike or motorcycle. Now as a mom, I am thinking differently.
My kids are two and four years old......should they have helmets on?
