Dunbar Cycling Group members have a wealth of experience of different types of bikes and accessories including tandems, goods trailers and child-carriers which they are happy to share. The following items are usually available to borrow for a special ride or to take home for a week or two to get a feel for them. Email info@dunbarcycling.org.uk to make a request. Thanks to Cycling UK for purchasing the child seats for us through a Big Lottery ‘Awards for All’ grant’.

 

4 BIKE CARRIER Our 4-bike carrier which can be fitted to the tow-bar of suitable cars which we use for group rides further afield e.g. trips to Glentress.
 Front mounted child seatTwo On A Bike  

Front-mounted child-seat from Dutch manufactuer Yepp. It is shown here fitted to a Brompton folding bike, but fits most bikes. It doesn’t affect the bike steering as much as you might think, and carrying a child between your arms is much more sociable that hiding them away behind your back. Give it a go!

 

 Rear Mounted Child Seat  

Conventional rear-mounted OKBaby child-seat fits to the seat-tube with a special bracket (supplied). Provides good all-round support for your child, and your body gives a degree of shelter from headwinds, so a better choice for colder days.

 Rack Mounted  

This rack-mounted child-seat fits in seconds to any bike with a sturdy rear-rack.

 Helmet  

We also have a small child’s helmet available for one-off trips and when trying out the other accessories

It is also possible to borrow a range of cycle trailers, or even a folding bike from Sustaining Dunbar for a period of a few hours to a couple of weeks. See their Borrow and Lend site for details.
