Cyclists skipping busy red lights with earbuds on and without looking while carrying their kids in tow is cyclists being idiots. Nothing new there tho.

99% are not responsible drivers. If they were they would not be on the fucken mobile. And a quick survey through the M50 will show its not 1 out of a 100.

Re: Children pillion.

while it sounds like a good idea,
my mrs was dropped to school on a honda 50 by her ma, travelling on the N52, but times were different then

5 mins on a bike, prolly about 15 minutes walk
for me personally I wouldn't take a 4 y.o pillion on a public road, where you have no control of the other muppets
only you can decide whats best for your kid,
but you would die with the guilt if anything happened

Re: Children pillion.

Seems to be the legality has been covered so its up to you given you know the route and probable users if it. My dad took myself and my brothers over the road when we were young(5/6), sat on the tank, just over and back so not on spins til we were older.

Re: Children pillion.

Crazy risk! Why take the chance with a small child. Nothing to do with legality just bloody common sense!

Re: Children pillion.

For god sake if it feels safe crawl over there and see how it goes. Make sure they have a helmet. If u have to go on a dual carriageway or rush hour type traffic mabye dont but otherwise go for it. I would and will bring my grandson in the future.

Re: Children pillion.

Regardless of legality, I wouldn't do it.

Too young, too risky in my opinion.
