Author Eben Weiss, aka Bike Snob NYC, stopped by our blog this week to guest post about Cycling with a Child.

In my latest book, Bike Snob Abroad, I write a lot about cycling as a family—you know, the kind of cycling where you actually do stuff together, as opposed to the kind where you put on some stretchy clothes and go off on your own to try to get a good time on Strava.

In particular, I write about cycling with a child in tow, which is something I’ve been doing for a couple of years now. (I mean I’ve been doing it with my child, I didn’t just borrow one.) As Americans, we’re pretty comfortable with putting on stretchy clothes and beating our best time on Strava, and we’re even pretty good at getting on a bike to go to the store, but we’ve got a long way to go as far cycling with a child passenger being considered “normal.”

I’m no different than most Americans, and I have a lot to learn in the “riding with kids” department. However, I have managed to figure out some stuff so far, which I’ll share with you.
