Re: Cycling with kids -- trail-a-bikes and trailer bikes

I recommend a Burley trailer. My neighbour used one for years with 2 kids up a steep hill. She still uses it now they are grown up for shopping. The Encore model is only 10.4kgs. The people that I know that own Burley ones seem to use them a lot! The ones with the Charriot seem to never use it.

Some friends complained that the charriot was too heavy, even on the flat.
That's a very valid point. Although Charriot do do models down to 10.2Kg.

I suppose the weight of the child is equally important. And the fitness of the driver!

We have a MacPac back pack child carrier and it's heavier than most. But it's brilliant.
We recommended it to some friends who asked but they really struggle with it. There's nothing wrong with the carrier. It's them. They don't have the strength. (I don't either but if there's a challenge involved...)
