Riding with Young Kids? No Problem!

Riding with Young Kids? No Problem!

One of the great things about going on a vacation is the ability to spend time with your family in a relaxing environment. When you have very young kids, it can be challenging to find activities that you can do with them that you can also enjoy as parents or with older siblings.

Bike riding is a great activity for all ages, providing an easy and fun experience that young and old alike can enjoy. But what about the youngest kids who aren’t old enough to ride yet? When you rent bicycles for your Nantucket vacation from Nantucket Bike Shop, our selection of accessories can make biking accessible to everyone in your family. Let’s take a look at some of the fantastic accessories and kid-friendly bikes for the littlest ones in your family.

Pull Little Ones Along with Child Seats and Carts

Burley CartJust because your kids don’t know how to ride bikes, it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be able to come along for the journey. Take the kids along using our rentable burley carts. Comfortable and dependable, these carts provide a cushioned ride for smaller children. The carts are equipped with safety straps to ensure that they are protected, and the top shield provides protection from the sun during the ride.

Another option is our rear child seat. Just like the dependable child seats that you have seen for years, our seats can accommodate for children up to 35 pounds. Take your young son or daughter along on a ride just the same way as your parents did with these convenient and safe seats.

Planning a picnic ride? Pack a place for your child to play with our portable crib rental. Easy to transport, these cribs provide plenty of room for your little ones to play. The crib folds up and assembles in just a few seconds and is easy to carry with you on your ride.

Ride Tandem with our Tag-a-Long Adult Bike

If your child is comfortable riding their bike but doesn’t want to take the journey alone, then they will absolutely love our Tag-a-Long bike options. These bike attachments connect to the back of a standard bicycle, allowing your young child to have the experience of riding along while still being kept stable and balanced by your bike. The Tag-a-Long is easy to connect and easy to enjoy, and is a great way for you and your son or daughter to work together to get to your destination.
