This morning, I was fortunate to spend time with a couple of awesome bikey mamas. One of our local Yuba mamas, Kate, met up with us at Doughbots for our Little Loop ride. Another mama just happened to be at the right place at the right time and we got a chance to visit with her, too. I love seeing and learning about what other families are doing to set up their kids in style and comfort and how to transport them safely. Every one has such unique preferences, routines, and abilities and yet we're all still dealing with similar challenges and working out solutions. Kate and I live in completely different areas of Sacramento so unfortunately we didn't have much time to ride together but for that one block or two, we were quite the sight--two kids on each of our bikes, she had another duckling following her on his own bike, and 'Nama took the tail end on her Bike Friday. I'm am already looking forward to planning Kidical Mass and other local rides with Kate and work together to bring family biking to Sacramento in a fun and safe way.
For other family resources, check out my Contact Us page. I can't possibly list them all but here are some awesome family biking blogs that you should also check out. If you know of someone I missed, drop me a line and I'll add them to my contacts. You can never have too many rad biking buddies (even if they are virtual biking buddies).
