Bicycling in Guernsey with young children

May 17th, 2011 by Richard Lord

Barney and Claire Lee and their young child visit the Sausmarez Manor farmers’ market by bicycle.

Barney Lee bicycles everyday to work.  He cycles everywhere in Guernsey except to do grocery shopping and to travel to the airport.  Claire has followed her husband’s enthusiasm for cycling.

With the birth of their child they looked for a way of travelling on their bicycles all together.

A friend recommended the Chariot and after a little reading they decided to buy one.  They couldn’t be happier with it.  Barney said “it’s brilliant.  It converts to a pram very quickly and it collapses to a small size so we have taken it on holiday.”

The Chariot is versatile.  The front wheels are removed and stored for the Chariot to be attached to a bicycle. An angled bar is then attached from the Chariot to the rear wheel hub of the bicycle.  The angled bar allows a bicycle to make tight turns with the Chariot attached.

The Chariot is lined with reflective strips, which makes it highly visible on dark days and in the beam of headlights.

The Chariot is available in one and two seater models with different accessories suitable for urban environments, or for hiking, and cross-country skiing.
