Transporting Children on a Freedom Ebike

Ever wondered about transporting children on a bicycle?
There are a number of options that can be used alone or in combination:
a) rear child seats;
b) front child seats;
c) child trailers for 2-3 kids;
d) riding double.

I've tried all except b) with much success and the kids love it.
Its also quite safe as long as you don't ride too fast and are aware of the extra size and weight.
However all of these options significantly increase the power demands on the rider such that its very difficult for normal people (ie not Lance Armstrong) to take multiple children in hilly terrain.

That's where the Freedom Ebikes electric conversion kit makes a huge difference.
I regularly transport my 2 kids (4 & 6) around hilly Jerusalem and Sydney on my Freedom Ebike. The motor really helps with the extra weight up hills and also makes it easier to ride double with the kids with them on the seat and me standing on the pedals. This way you don't have to pedal all the time and can use the motor to keep you going once you're moving.

Overall an electric motor vastly extends the usability of your bike for transporting loads of all kinds, including kids.
Now when we hail a taxi the kids complain and say they want to go by bike!

I've a bike and I always ride my bike with my child to keep him front child seats. I think it is the best way to keep themselves safe. Thanks dude.

Collarenebri has long been recorded as a significant site for Aboriginal people living in the area. There are many artifacts and significant sites along the Barwon River. On Collymongle Station there are some very old aboriginal carved trees. Thanks.
