Safe age to start son on stoker seat?

Posted By: Naomi Lewis
Date: 20 April 2008

I have an adult Dawes tandem and a 3 year old son. I am a very fair weather cyclist and although I do have a trailer for him I've hardly used it, partly due to worrying about cycling in traffic with him so close to cars but mostly due to extreme lack of fitness! Whilst I was a reasonable touring stoker of the tandem pre divorce, I have only ever had very nervous attempts at driving the thing.

I was wondering what age you would recommend it was safe to put a child on the back of the tandem and where I would buy a handle bar cage. Do people normally go straight for kiddie cranks or would I just use the back seat as a glorified child seat?

Cheers
Naomi
