We’ve finally sold the Kangaroo Bike. It was a major part of our lives for three years, being used day in, day out for transporting the boys to playgroup, nursery and then school. Last year, though, both the boys had grown too big for it, and become competent cyclists in their own right, so we decided it had to go. It would have been nice to have kept it or converted it to more of a cargo bike but we couldn’t justify it.
The bike is now on its way to Yorkshire where it’s to be used for transporting dogs. And very pampered dogs they will be, too! Before it went, though, I took last photograph of the boys with the bike to sit alongside the photo I took just after assembling the bike back in December 2006. The boys were as sad to see the Kangaroo Bike go as they were excited when it arrived and throughout the entire time we used it. The bike was a magnificent machine and proved to be a genuine alternative to the car it replaced. It was also huge fun.
