I have four awesome kids. They have spent most of their life growing up in California. I love California. The weather is beautiful and the beach is amazing. We lived in Los Angeles area where the streets were all on high hills and really not the best place for riding bikes. My husband worked long hours and it really wasn't convenient for me to take four kids to another location to learn how to ride bikes. We had lots of fun enjoying outdoor activities but riding bikes wasn't one of them.
About a year ago, my husband had an opportunity that took our family to Utah. This was a fun move for us because my husbands family lives in the area so we were able to move close to them. We bought a house in a beautiful neighborhood with lots of flat roads and bike trails. All the neighbor hood kids spend hours playing outside together and riding bikes. It seems like all the kids ages 2+ knew how to ride bikes. At this point, my 9, 7, and 3 year olds all had no idea how to ride. I felt really bad about this because it wasn't a priority in California, but in Utah this is something that the kids really enjoy doing and I wanted my kids to be able to join in on the fun. It was about this time that I got contacted about the Burley Trailercycle. The timing couldn't have been more perfect and the product couldn't have been more awesome.

I wish you could have been here to see how excited my daughter was to be riding with my husband. She had a huge smile on her face. Her confidence was rising and she was having so much fun. She had the opportunity to learn to balance, and pedal without having to worry about her bike tipping. The Kazoo is single speed which is perfect for my daughter learning how to ride.
The Burley Trailercycles include everything needed to connect to your bike. It connected easily to my husbands bike and they were ready to ride without any problems. We were very impressed with the ease and speed of getting them ready for their first bike ride. The Kazoo has a
I asked my husband to put the bike together for me and expected it to be a long slow process only to have him come in less than 5 minutes later telling me that it was finished. My daughters Trailercycle was now a bike and a good looking bike, too!
I think the Burley Kazoo bike is the perfect size for kids. My daughter was able to fit comfortable and not have to worry about struggling to reach the pedals. I have to say, I was surprised at how quickly she was able to learn to ride on her own. She was able to start riding the first time we put the bike together. I definitely think that it helped her learn confidence and basic mechanics of how to ride a bike as she used it at a trailercycle behind my husbands bike. This helped her understand exactly what she needed to do once she was on her own.
Here she goes:
The smile tells all! She was so excited to FINALLY be riding a bike! She kept saying over and over again how much fun she was having. Her confidence grew so much in this process and I am so excited to have her enjoying what all of the neighborhood kids are enjoying! I am so proud of her. We love the Burley Kazoo Trailercycle and the Plus attachment. We couldn't have done it without it!
