box biking at 10F

    Newer Older

    We did the usual 6 mile round trip to church today at 10 degrees Fahrenheit (-12C).

    Soon after we left the house, she took off both her hat and gloves. Half way through the 25 minute ride there I asked if she was warm enough and she said she was. When we arrived, I checked her ears and hands, which she had done nothing to cover. Her fingers were warmer than mine, which had been under two layers of mittens!

    I already knew that the weather canopy works likes a greenhouse, but the insulation effect is even greater than I suspected. Even on our coldest days it appears to be warm enough for a child to sit under comfortably for trips around town.

    ( We only rode down this snow-covered bike path long enough to take some photos. )

      I was wondering how it would do
      in the snow.
      But you've kept it on the pavement?

      It's been in the snow some. It handles like a pick up truck. You can add weight to the box for extra traction, and lower the seat to easily put your foot down for balance.

      My other bikes are recumbents and folding bikes...this is definitely the best one for snow and slick conditions.

      Wow, your daughter has gotten so big! I think it's been a year since I've seen a photo -- haven't been keeping up with the bakfiets pool like I used to.
