    yep.

    the thought of having someone else wriggling and moving around on the bike was enough to put me off. I simply refused to go unless DH was home to look after DD (getting a trailer didnt occur to me ).

    But then, I am not super confident at handling my bike. A crash a while back and a dodgy ankle undermine my confidence ...

    On my first go with ds on the back of the bike (after bribing him to not scream the house down as soon as I put him in!) I misjudged the extra effort required to get up our steep driveway and had to stop halfway up. I nearly lost the bike and kid!! Since then, I don't ride with him on the back, dh is much stronger and so the seat is on his bike. And on topic: my bike is a Giant men's bike and it's awesome!
