The Trail-A-Bike

Recently while I was killing time with the twins while Pierce was at one of his little camps, I made a great find at a thrift store.  It was one of those Trail-A-Bikes, which hook on to an adult's bike but allow the kid to ride around behind.  They run about $250+ brand new, but this one that I bought used was only $20 (and it was in great condition)!  Kids can ride a Trail-A-Bike even when they aren't able to ride a regular bike without training wheels.

Pierce has absolutely fallen in love with riding the Trail A Bike with Paul.  Every evening he begs to go for a bike ride.  And the other weekend, they did an 11 mile bike ride!

What an excellent activity for Pierce to do with his Dad!  I think it may be the best $20 I have ever spent! Aren't they cute?

You've gotta love a thrift shop! You just never know what you'll find, and you seem to have found quite a bargain. Love the photos!

I'm seriously envious of your AWESOME find. I would love one of those but like you say, to buy regular price is a bit insane. Deaglan would love it too.

That is an amazing find, not only for what you got for your twenty dollars, but for what it represents in the happy memories Pierce will have about time spent with his daddy! That-as they say, is priceless:) And 11 miles-wow! Way to go Pierce!!

I have never seen such a thing, but what a smokin' bargain!When the twins get old enough for this it will wear Paul out riding with both of them every night. You better be on the lookout for a another one.

That is so cool! We seen one of those the last time we were at Canaan. I had never seen one before then. That is really neat! Is it easy to drive? I'd be scared to do it myself but then again it has been years since I've rode a bike.

Have a Great Weekend!
