Communal cycling, inclusive to families with young children.

The existing bike for theLondon based Santander Cycle Scheme doesn't take into account families with young children. It doesn't cater for those who are too young or not able to ride a bike, and doesn't consider those anxious to ride on their own.

My concept does. With a simple connection, my connect can connect together, forming a suitable tandem. This encourages social cycling within a family.

The integrated frame seat is perfect for toddlers and young children. It allows all family members to come out for a ride, where as before, small children might have been a limitation.
