Sophie borrows a bike seat (and reports back)

Sophie borrows a bike seat (and reports back)

I met Travel West on my first day back at work after maternity leave. I was wondering how to get to and from work via nursery with my 13 month old - walk (too long), bus (too long/unreliable), car (parking/traffic jams) or bike (kit, rain, balance). The Travel West advisors suggested I speak to Lifecycle about borrowing a child seat or a trailer... and a partnership was born.
