We hear a lot about how European mums get around on our bikes, but our latest bike blog discovery is Mama Bicycle – a blog all about the distinctively Japanese utility bike called the Mamachari.

The “mama’s chariot” is a slow, heavy step-through bike fitted with a chainguard, fenders, rack, skirt guard, baskets and most importantly, child carriers.

And on a side note, how cute is the author’s little daughter? 🙂
