Contest Closed: Win a Yepp Maxi Rear Child Bicycle Seat Momentum Mag is giving away a Yepp Maxi Rear Child Bicycle Seat. Enter by Sunday, January 20, 2013 for your chance to win. en-us <function copyright at 0x564ef50> Sun, 20 Jan 2013 09:29:34 GMT Happy commuting f54c92cc-6326-11e2-bc15-1231394043be Sun, 20 Jan 2013 09:29:34 GMT Time for Adventure! - Day Care: Driving to and from day care makes up the largest amount of driving our family does. However, bicycle commuting from our home to day care takes less time than it does to drive there. The result is that we would get to spend more time at home together because we could leave for day care later, leave day care earlier, and have more fun during our commute. (See this video for fun reference:
- Grocery Store: Grocery shopping is the second largest amount of driving our family does, which would be made far more fun if we had a Maxi seat because we could stop at parks, playgrounds, or to meet new friends, and friendly animals (the kids like animals) far easier than if we were driving.
- Friends, Parks, and Playgrounds: Our house has a Bike Score of 89, with more than half a dozen parks on the way, or a short detour away from our daily commute and shopping trips. A thirty minute ride gives us access to dozens more, museums, and the homes of most of our friends to visit. I plan on lots of trips to these places for visits, feeding ducks, family picnics, and playing adventures.
- Camping: With so many parks near our home, I look forward to take our kids on sub-24 hour overnight camping trips, and enjoy things like toasted marshmallows, camping food, sleeping outside, and storytelling.
- Foreign Countries: My wife is an archeologist with a focus on island southeast Asia. My bike was built with S&S couplers to bring it with when traveling with her. I cannot wait to take the kids for rides while visiting other countries, so we can try new foods, see local sights, and make exciting memories.

Now our beautiful baby is a smart and insanely fun toddler, and she loves biking just as much as always, but she's going to have outgrown her front yepp by the time biking season rolls around. We would love to have this so that we could keep up our non-motorized lifestyle!]]> 85654412-5f80-11e2-bb32-1231394043be Tue, 15 Jan 2013 18:00:37 GMT

Why? Because I want to teach my daughter that there's more to getting around than driving. That biking together is fun. That it's fast. That even a quick ride to school or the grocery store counts as quality time. And that it's a great way to be independent while also being aware of the community of which we're a part.

And the cool thing is that more we bike, the better future we'll have. I'll be healthier and be more likely to be there for her in her future. She'll be happier and smarter, more connected to her environment and more appreciative of where she lives.

These are all valuable lessons she's going to need as she grows up and starts riding on her own. Because in the future I want to hand off to my daughter, there will be many more bikes!
