Parenthackers on Twitter replied with enthusiasm, and I will be summarizing those replies in a separate post. But for now, I ask those of you who ride with your baby or toddler:

- What about clothing and outerwear?
- Any tips for biking safely and comfortably?
Send your tips to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line BIKING WITH BABY and I will post forthwith!
