    Newbie - safest trailing / hybrid bike for carrying children?

    My husband and I want to start biking with our children in Surrey as so many bike trails, what would be the safest and best bike type that people would recommend? Thanks!

    PS I am going to use a rear seat like the Hamax Caress or BoBike Tour seat.

    Hi Milly

    I used the CO Pilot Taxi seat with my now 4yo. It fits to a pannier rack so is lower down than some other and therefore easier to control - it also reclines which was good when he was younger and always fell asleep on the bike - at 4 we moved to a tagalong which he now loves as he can go faster! We only used it on farm tracks and obviously a litle road and bike paths - not full off road.

    I'm not sure what the caress or bobike are like - I looked at the fron ones where they can see more adn sit attached to the bikes toptube but being normal female height I was unsure if he would be too big for me to see over the top/control the bike with him in the way.

    Hope that helps
