The Chainlink

Hello, I am a new comer here from Japan. Nice to meet you.^^ Anyway, let me introduce myself a bit. I have been riding my Japanese bicycle with a special front child seat, personally called "mama bicycle" for over five years. (I am also writing about the bicycle on my blog "mama bicycle" )  I really appreciate it because my daughters and I have been to everywhere using it although the destination is always within thirty minutes. Of course, many mother and also fathers ( in fact fathers sometimes) ride such kind of well family friendly bicycles in Japan. I will be glad if more mothers and fathers outside Japan will try it with their children.

By the way, I have often heard that many mothers in the US feel scary if they happen to ride bicycles especially with their children. Is it seriously true? I would like to discuss about the use of the bicycle. Of course, I think it is not easy for American to start to try it soon.^^

Anyway,I would like to show my bicycle and many other ones. Thank you for readingSN3I2164.JPGSN3I2077.JPGSN3I2097.JPG

Welcome!! We have a growing community of families who bicycle with our children here in Chicago, but it does sometimes feel like an uphill battle (despite Chicago's lack of hills :) Concerns about car traffic are probably the biggest issues. Here is a page we put together for families with young children who want to bicycle in winter. http://bikewinter.org/kids

 

And, here are some other blogs and other resources, some of them Chicago-based. The last one links to some posts I wrote about car-free living during our son's first few years. We got him in a trailer and bike seat as soon as we could. Speaking of my son--I have to run! I look forward to exploring your blog. I saw some pictures already. Inspiring!

Wow, thank you for your great reply. I really appreciate it. Well, as you say, you seem to concern about car accidents which would hurt your children badly. You are also battling to many slopes too...However, you and your children are always laughing, that make me fee happy.^^ 

Thank you for sharing other grate blogs too. I am looking forward to checking them. Well, please forgive my poor English. I am learning English for a year recently. See you. Have a nice weekend. Say hello to your adorable kids!

Let's start a collection to pay for Shuichi to come visit Chicago.

I'm in for the first $50.

I wish I could fly to Chicago. I am still in my office. Now it is 23:45. I feel sleepy.

 

Anyway, I have taken a glance at every blog which was introduced above. Well, they are all impressive.

 

I think many kids seat on a cargo at a time. They seem to enjoy riding.

 

Anyway, I hope I will get a trail on which my older daughter can ride behind me.

 

Thank you.

Is this your blog?
Hi Julie. Bingo!^^ I have been writing it every day. Thank you.

The blog link was posted twice to chainlink (first by cutifly and then to The Happy Thread) and shuichi apparently followed the hits back to here.

 

 

Hi H3N3 I am back here third times.^^ Ah, I am not familiar with doing things like other members here usually post or create their opinions here. I plan to feel free to create my forum here about mama bicycle. If you have some advice for me please teach me.

Mama Bicycle, if you page through the discussion here you will find many photos of cycling with children  Chicago Kidical Mass

 

And if you ever come to Chicago, please come join us for a ride.

 

 

 

 

shuichi, I think it's great that you found this forum and the way you found it is nice. I was only trying to explain how you came here since many or most users don't read every discussion and there seemed to be some confusion.
