we just moved to a town with wonderful bike paths, and plan to take advantage of them this spring/summer. i'm trying to decide how to carry everyone safely while we ride. one option is to put both our 2.5 yr old and baby in a covered trailer, but i'm a little hesitant. the little guy would only be 9 or 10 months when we first use it, and i would feel better waiting until next summer. the other option is two bike seats, one on my bike and one on dh's bike. so what would be the difference with using a bike seat for the little guy versus carrying him in our ergo, if he was wearing a helmet? i feel like i could protect him more if he was on my body, and naturally would fall (if i fell) in a way to prevent harm to him. we would never ride on streets, and our bike paths are strictly for non-motorized vehicles, so falling is the only safety consideration.
