When it comes to biking together with your kids, bike trailers are the way to go. There are no balance or control issues since your child adds to the weight of the trailer itself, plus it has a much higher weight limit when compared to a standard bike seat for a child. These are also a very good investment because most of the bike trailers are convertible so you can use them as strollers for jogging. We’re going to show you the best bike trailers 2018:
Croozer premium Multisport Bike Child Trailer

Some pros are that it has big tires which make it easier to move and it has a low center of gravity which gives it stability and balance. Some cons are that its handlebars can’t be adapted to a shorter or taller person and it’s a bit bigger than a normal jogging stroller.
