Xtracycle radish family bike

 

Santa Claus brought my son an brand new, bright blue “big boy” bike. Surprise, surprise….he loves it! Seeing him out there riding around makes me excited to get a new tube for my bike tire so I can go out there and join him. It is just nice to be outside, enjoying the fresh air and getting out of the house and away from the iPad and the couch. Spring will be here before we know it so it is a perfect time to get ready for outdoor fun.

Last week a high school classmate of mine was telling me about these super cool family bikes from Xtracycle – the FreeRadical and the Radish. They are awesome. I just had to spread the word because I thought they were so cool and so great for families. They are ideal for peddling to spring picnics, trips to the farmers market and even for little cruises in the neighborhood. What I love is that the bikes are extra long so you can actually carry 2 kids, not just one. How practical and fabulous is that?! And there is still room for toys, a diaper bag, a frisbee and groceries too.

Here is the scoop straight from the source: “Xtracycle’s LongTail innovation is a hitchless trailer that evolves the bike rack, bike bag (or pannier or basket), bike trailer, passenger seat, and baby seat into one cargo bike or sport utility bicycle system. With a long wheelbase, balanced center of gravity, and versatile carrying capacity, your Xtracycle LongTail may open the door to car-free or car-lite transportation in your life.”

So go check their site out today and see what you think. It might be time to make a little room in your garage for one of your own. A cool ‘toy’ the whole family can enjoy.
