 Thanks for all your comments! I have done many wrong things since he was 1 yr old and that was showing him earthed 5 (he cried everytime he saw anyone falling to the groung... until he grew old enough to say "Ooopsss..." and giving a laugh for seeing people trying hard) and buying him one of those bikes with no pedals or balancing wheels. All summed up he is now 2 yrs and cries everytime I go ride (since he would rather join on his bike or on the ... so this summer at the alps and after going for a family hike I tried using the thing on the bike.... he was obviously more than happy to follow me for a couple of runs (it was even more fun for him because he thought the chairlift was an helicopter... and you could not talk him otherwise! Smile ) ... bottom line being this was just a ride in the park keeping the holidays also fun for him (and for my wife that had some time off for her) 99% in control... all good... of course something could happen... but it could also happen when you're just driving your car....

props to everyone... when I read the first comment I felt somehow bad with myself and wondered if everyone shared the same idea/feeling...

well hopefully next year he will be able to do some parts of the on himself... when that happens I will be nervous ! Smile

 'grats on having such an awesome kid. Looks super fun. Don't let any nay-sayers get you down. You wouldn't risk your child, we all know that, so do what you feel is fun. Keep on rippin'
  • + 16
 You are a great dad. Expose that little dude to the riding early, and one day you and he will be ripping the trails together. You probably won't be able to keep up with him at some point. Nice work man. You can tell he is having the time of his life.

 That's really cool man, nice to let your kid join in like that, i'm sure any responsible dad and experienced DHer would take it easy with their kid on their back!

 Nice! But take care and don't fall... :/

 nice! start em young!! Smile
  • + 3
 Such a great pic! I'm still trying to get my nephew into riding while he's young before he becomes a chav and just wants to smoke weed - It's great to see you're giving your kid a head start at having a hobby/sport in their life, more parents should pay this much attention to their kids!
  • + 1
 not just chavs who like to open their minds once in a while you know. but yeh, chavs in general are fags. i think im gna get my 3yr old sister into real riding, maybe not this way, but when shes good enough to ride without stablisers.

 I vote POD man, why would you take your kid down a DH run full on, these guys are stupid, i think you have enough brains to not do that to your son, lol. They all assume the worse. I think its great, i love riding and he looks to be having fun!
  • + 0
 Hi Miguel ! You`re an awesome dad for doing that ! I know you took care of him and he enjoyed this to the max, having the time of his life ! You really should transmit your passion to him, as he shows a good feedback to this ! Keep on having fun, he`s lucky to have such a father, as mine doesn`t even understand my passion for biking !
  • + 1
 oh for gods sake....all these paranoid people who are like "this is irresponsable and stupid" just f*ck off hah, its more dangerous to take a child in a car than it is to do this?!?!?

 dont ya think he's a lil smarter than going to huck off 20 foot drops with his kid.. i think its a good thing if the kid is enojying it.. check out that thumbs up and big smile.. doubt he had a rough ride
  • + 72
 aggreed, he says he was slow motion and the kid is clearly enjoing it, im sure this guy is sensible enough to not hurt his child.
  • + 62
 yeah lol, i bet he's pullin' back flips and 3's off 50 footers, hotbikerkeeler, your so gay lmfao

 LUCKY KID. i wish my dad did that when i was young so sick POD.
  • + 2
 look at the smile on the kid, he is obviously having a good time. thats rad
  • + 3
 I am so doing that with my kids! When i have kids that is... LOL
  • + 26
 Of course the kid is smiling, it's fun for him. But he doesn't know the dangers. I mean, everyone of us had stupid crashes even while going slow. So hust in case, what would happen. If the guy going down, doesn't matter in which direction, the kid will hit the ground first or at least at the same time. And imagine a rough section, this hasn't got as many muscles in his neck to absorb every bump. so maybe it looks fun, but i don't think that you should do that with your kid if have a little sense of responsibility
  • + 13
 Or maybe he isnt going on any trails and is just taking his kid for alittle ride around. Ever think of that one?

 comon the kid has a helmet did you notice that? really.
  • + 0
 hah I remember when my dad used to put me on the back on his bike. He told me a story recently about how he rode from the top of this cemetary(really hilly) and he said he musta been goin about 50mph at the top straight away and bombing it the whole way down haha, of course this was probably like 17 or 18 years ago but still Big Grin

hmmm guess thats why I love going fast and love bikes Smile
  • + 0
 he probably thought about the consequence of a crash for a while before he did this. if he's an expert rider, and is confident in his riding abilities at going fast down gnarly mountains, i don't think he would have a problem going slow with his kid on his back down an easy trail, or maybe even an access road. as long as the kid is fine with it and having fun, +1 props for dad.
  • - 1
 Haha, we use to go to our local cemetary and see who`s faster, I remember going 60km/h and turning back to see that a car was behind me, or when I was going 40km/h and my rear wheel stuck ! Haha, that was a long while ago !
