    Default Riding with Burley through the city - is this safe?

    We just started using the Burley Honey Bee for our one-year-old. We've taken him through Rock Creek Park and it's gone very well.

    We'd like to bike downtown from time to time to go to the National Mall, get lunch, etc., but I feel like I never see anyone biking downtown with a child in a trailer.

    Do people generally feel it's safe to bike with a Burley around cars on busy city streets?

    Thanks!

    As long as you're cautious and use common sense when riding with Burley, your ride should be safe. Always wear a helmet when riding bike, ridden in any public space, and avoid driving while intoxicated. When using the app, make sure to follow all safety guidelines listed on the screen before starting your ride. Additionally, always take regular breaks and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated during your journey.

    I have biked around with Willow (dog) in a Burley trailer. Folks, especially in cars, generally give us more space and get quite excited to see a puppy being towed in a trailer. I think as long as you use common sense and are extremely predictable, you will be fine with the kiddo in a trailer.

    ALWAYS use the trailer's flag.

    I love that this two year old thread got reinvigorated by a spam account.
