Bike trailer question - Page 2

post #21 of 22
We have the Burley, and it is designed to "work" with helmets, but it still doesn't work for my kids. Maybe they're not tall enough? They're about 40 inches tall and 4.5 years old. Anyway, I don't make them wear their helmets in the trailer. But they are strapped in tight. They know that they need to wear helmets to ride their bikes (like-a-bikes) or when they go in the bike seat that's on the bike (as opposed to the trailer). I just see very little potential for them to hit their heads on anything in the trailer. I think they'd be more likely to hit their heads falling out of a tree, and I don't make them wear helmets when they climb trees.

HTH!

We haven't used our bike trailer yet but I don't see our 17 month old twins leaving a helmet on......I don't think we'd go very fast with them anyways....I would like to use helmets more for the fact that they don't bang heads than tipping over....I'll try it but I don't think it will be happening.
