Kiddie Cargo Trikes

Europe is awesome for kids! We went to an indoor play arena for kids win the homeschool group last week. I think my 32 year old kid had the most fun. At the place they had a few different cargo trikes for kids. They are apparently made by Winther but I couldn’t find anything on their website. Sorry the pictures are so blurry, she moves fast!

She was not able to pull Daddy on the trike but she tried really hard!

[Not] Cycling in Munich

With my best friend still in town we headed to Munich for a whirlwind day trip and then to the Mountains for the night. Trex is so big that I can’t travel with him and everytime we go to a new place I always think, “I wish I had my bike”. Every trip has me thinking how much I need a folding bike. Maybe the lovely folks at Brompton could sponsor me to do a travel series around Europe? Of course I’d need a child seat too so Cady could come along. Cycling infrastructure appeared to be great in Munich even though I did not get to use it and the Englischer Garten certainly seemed like a great place to go for a ride away from the city.
We did have time for a short stop at Velo Company. I researched ahead of time and found they carried Larry vs Harry longjohns as well as Nihola and Christiania trikes. I even saw a woman near the Marienplatz on a Nihola with a Velo Company sticker.

I was a little shocked to not see any xtracycles given the surfing phenomenon here but it seems they have found a different way to carry their boards to the park

The surfers were amazing to watch. I can’t wait to come back and someday explore the city by bike.
