It is no secret that I am a huge fan of multi-tasking which is why I am loving this two in one bike trailer / stroller combo from InStep ( $149.99). What a great concept!
You can pack your little one into the trailer, bike to your destination - let's say your local farmer's market. Just lock up your bike, detach the trailer, add the stroller handle and walk around the market. Reverse the process to bike home.
InStep has been making both strollers and trailers for years, so they know how to make a lightweight, multi-functional product. The trailer attaches easily to most bikes and comes with a weather shield for rainy day rides. Plus it has a 5-point harness to keep the little one secure and nice cushy tires to help soften bumps in case you encounter some rough roads. This trailer is recommended for children over the age of one.
Don't forget helmets for the whole family and why not add an orange safety flag to the trailer while you are at it! Make your trailer as conspicuous as possible.
You can find one on sale for only $109 at Amazon.
