Hi everyone! I have a 4 y/o son who just this year has started cycling and seems to love it (he only stays with me part-time).
We havent gone on any rides longer than a mile, partly because the only safe place I can think of to take him is Memorial Drive when it's closed to cars on Sunday evenings and by the Charles River in the Watertown (?) area - and also because my goal is for us to do outdoor things together that he enjoys, so distance really isnt important to me at this point
I think the Esplanade is too crowded for him to not get intimidated with the fast riders, bladers etc. Same thing with the Minuteman Trail.
He saw other kids on TABs recently and liked the idea so after reading this sub-forum I picked one up on CL for 50 bucks!
Any suggestions on kid-friendly places to ride? I live in Cambridge. fyi I'll be using an old Raleigh mtn bike.
Also any suggestions for someone who's new to TABs? I have good balance and confidence on my own but not sure what's it like to ride with the TAB + deal with my any nervousness my son might have.
