Poll: Where do your kids bicycle?
I am curious when you bicycle in town/city with your independent-riding young children (5 yo+) , do you have them:
A. Go in front of your bicycle (so you can easily see/guide them)
B. Go behind your bicycle (so they follow your lead)
C. Vary it
D. Other (please explain)
Also, if you have more than one cycling child with you, do you split their positions or group them? If you divide them, where does the younger & older bicycle in relation to your bicycle?
I used to have my youngest (7 yo) ride behind me, because I thought I could keep a good eye on him with my mirror, but he really couldn't hear me well, and now having him in front, I feel like drivers see me better (bigger size), so they'll know there are cyclists ahead... but as I keep thinking about it, I want to hear what others do, to see if there's maybe something I'm not thinking about and could do better.
