We found the Adams Trail-a-Bike while researching bikes online and it was really well reviewed so we gave it a shot. It came while we were on vacation so we were really excited to give it a try when we got home this past weekend.
Adams sells a couple options on these bikes, we chose the compact folding model which is recommended for ages three to five. I am pretty sure Grace will be able to use it past 5 though. They have a tandem model as well as larger bikes for kids up to 10 years old. The bike also has an optional seat back with a seat belt that I thought we were going to need to get but based on Grace's comfort level on our first quick test ride I don't think we will need it.
The one drawback is that the bike is pretty heavy. It weights 23 pounds, add to that a 30 pound kid an that is a lot of extra weight to drag around. So I don't think we will be taking many 25 mile trips. I also got a little nervous on our first ride as I can't see her back there while I am riding so I picked up a mirror so I can keep an eye on her.
Looking forward to getting out on the bike trails next weekend for a longer ride of the weather cooperates. A quick video below of Grace's first ride.
