The use of child seat equipped bicycles is a regular, everyday sight in Tokyo. A similar, albeit more improvised approach for transporting the elderly, on the other hand, isn’t anywhere near as common. And yet seeing these two chat away as they wound their way through the streets made me think that maybe it should be.
I love this and she has such a cute headscarf! 🙂
Thank you. Definitely a nice dash of colour. Just a pity her daughter wasn’t wearing something with a similar pattern. That would have been perfect.
Lovely! In my city, a bike collective has gone this way and purchased a tricycle rickshaw. Volunteers push the pedals (with electric assistance), elderly people enjoy the ride for free.
It was really nice to see. Weirdly, having never seen this before, it was the second such sight I’ve seen in the space of the last few weeks.
What a great idea. Both practical and enjoyable. Hopefully it’ll be a success and quickly spread to other cities.
While it is great that the younger woman is doing this, it looks uncomfortable for the older woman. I hope I am wrong.
Happy to say I don’t think so. She was taking care to hold on tight of course, but otherwise they were having an enjoyable chat together.
She has got a rather pristine mode of transport with a timeless design and a unique colour scheme, at least until I noticed the window blind in the top right!
She has, looks like a brand new bike. Bought for this very purpose perhaps. Ah, nicely spotted. Lovely when colours match like that. Would love to say I planned it that way, but that wouldn’t be very truthful.
