Topeak and iBert child seats, a Trail-a-Bike trailer, and Norco kids bikes get them rolling

Parents Canada magazine and ParentsCanada.com writer Astrid Van Den Broek suggests it’s never too early to instill a love of cycling in your family. “From baby bike seats to run bikes to tandem bikes, these days it’s easier than ever to get your child involved in the biking scene.”

In the July 2013 issue, Parents Canada introduces the front-mount iBert safe-T-seat and rear-mount Topeak BabySeat II as options for infants as young as six months old.

A no-pedals run bike helps kids discover balance, while a bicycle with training wheels helps them discover steering and pedalling. For older children (starting with four- to five-year-olds), an Adams Trail-A-Bike “bike extender” can attach to the seat post of your own bicycle to turn it into a tandem bicycle.

When they’ve got balance figured out, kids can pedal a larger bike with more features such as bikes for older kids by Norco Bicycles.
