The Safest Baby Carriers For Bikes

Updated on March 20, 2013

Keep Your Baby Safe On A Bike With One Of These Baby Carriers

As a parent you can easily get cabin fever tending to a small child day in and day out. In addition to heading out to the store for groceries it's good to get out of the house for exercise. It helps to keep you sane.

Strapping baby into stroller and hitting the streets is a good way to relieve stress but so is going out for a bike ride. Unless you have a fancy and not too expensive baby bike trailer to go out for a ride you need a good and safe bike carrier for your little guy or gal.

Personally I like bike trailers for bigger kids but for the smaller ones I want to make sure they stay safe, upright, and supported in front of me on a baby bike seat. I think these are safer as they provide better head support and they allow you to monitor your baby better than if they are in an enclosed trailer behind you. This is a personal preference of course.

My Favorite Bicylce Baby Seat Carrier

There are a few different styles of baby carriers and bike seat for small children. The aforementioned bike trailer is popular as is the bike mounted seat which I prefer for the smaller kids. Some seats sit behind the parent and some in front. The child's bike seat featured below is my favorite. It's great for kids one year and older and it mounts in front of the parent rider on almost any bike. It provides protection for your toddler almost all the way around and it even gives them front support to lean on and hold onto. I love it. Below this you'll see a few other solutions in various styles if this is not exactly what you had in mind.

Top Rated Baby Bike Trailers

For the most part these trailers shouldn't be used for biking with kids younger than the age of 1 however many can be converted from a stroller into a bike trailer making them useful for parents of infants and older toddlers alike. Personally these are my preferred way of taking kids out on the road on my bike but only when they start getting a bit big for the bike seats.

For standard baby carrying on bikes the InStep Sync will do just fine. For kids roughly 1-4 years of age.

 
Schwinn Trailblazer Single Bike Trailer,Blue/Gray,16-Inch
Schwinn Trailblazer Single Bike Trailer,Blue/Gray,16-Inch

This is similar to the Sync featured above. It's a smaller unit than the Baby Jogger POD and thus will not fit your kids as they get older and bigger. Having said that it will work well for kids right up to kindergarten age so it's a good investment for the money.
