The real beauty of doing bike hire in Cornwall is getting to use stuff like the our new Co-Pilot childs bike seat and somehow kidding myself that there is a work element to it. In the back of my mind I of course realise that I am wildly misguided but, y’know. It’s the little things.
So it was with feelings of ‘sticking it to the man’ that my wife and I headed out onto the blustery Cornish lanes with the boy on the baby bike seat. It was the first time we’ve all been out for a little while and I’d forgotten how easy it was with the boy on the back. If anything he makes my clumsy cycling style a little more smoother. Even with the wind buffeting us we made it safely to the beachside cafe for our coffee fix while the boy’s grumpy afternoon post-nap mood had – literally – been blown away.
And as any parent knows, if the kids are happy everyone’s happy.
