Sorry all, I had not been able to access my internet, so I am combining these memes.

I have often seen this family of human powered vehicles. Mum or dad rides the adult bicycle which has a chariot attached to it. Rain or shine I see them. An older child rides his child size bicycle. This exemplifies what we can do for the environment and teaches the children too to love the world. Inside the chariot are two little ones, all bundled up during the wintery rainy days.

I tried often to photograph this family but was in vain when I was driving along the road. yesterday, I eyed them going into the community library and gave me this perfect opportunity.

Wow, wonder if they made this? I thought maybe it would be pets in the back! But I guess they would not sit quietly.

We have those kinds of bikes with attached carriers for their babies driving around the neighborhoods too! Our season is just so short!! Today the winds are blowing - to get the leaves off the trees!

There are lots of those cycle chariots here too. Very good exercise!

We have this carrier also for children, of course it's not covered the same way.
If you need ivy, then come with a truck, I have enough to decorate a hundred of churches ! It grows like weed !!

Missed you postings over the few days...Lovely idea....and in China..lots of trollers behind bicycles..the translation for bicycles in China is not leg pedalled vehicle...but self automatic/self propelled vehicle (zi tung cher)!!

Lovely way for a family to travel together without using the car! I'd love to be the little child who gets to ride in that little enclosed "nest". Thanks for sharing!

I see a few people here in Oregon with baby trailers on their bikes . Eugene (the City near where we're staying) is quite bicycle friendly. Not so much out here in the country where we are though.
