Yesterday I was surprised to see a mom cyclist (riding in the wrong direction) with an infant in a seat mounted on her handle bars. Is that where kids ride these days?
Back when I was little, I rode in a seat behind the rider, over the rear wheel. Intuitively, this seems like a much safer place. The rider doesn't have the distraction of the toddler in front. Moreover, it's easier to steer a bike with the weight in the back.
Am I missing something?
