It has been years since I've ridden a bike, other than a stationary fitness bike. I've thought about it a lot, but never really did anything to get back on one. Besides, there aren't many places around where I live to ride a bike without needing to drive several miles to a park.

What do you get when you cross a willful, stubborn, potty-training toddler with baggy, saggy jeans?
Truthfully, I don't want to know. But thanks to sister inventors Talia Bahr Goldfarb and Danielle Bahr Eason, kids now have a simple way to keep their pants above their knees. Their solution? Myself Belts. These innovative belts snap around the first belt loop (so it remains attached at all times). After sliding the belt through the rest of the loops, the child simply secures the end with the Velco closure. This design allows little ones to pull and tighten one-handed without the belt coming out of the loops, and without any tricky buckles to manage. read more »
