I ride my son to his daycare on a Centric Safe Haven seat. He loves pointing out trucks, busses and especially construction equipment. We ride an urban route through SF.
I'm a scientist in training at UCSF and I'm currently looking for a job. I've raced in the past (road cat 2) and commuted much more in the Chicagoland area going from the North side to Maywood to grad school (30 mi rt). That included many run-ins with cars.
I got busted for running through train track lights. I was late to see the Xfiles, and the cop was just waiting for me. Doh, I haven't done that again.
More people should consider riding with their kids. Its a good bonding time, especially when the seat is front-mounted like the Centric.
