My shift at work is going to be changing soon and this means more time with my daughter and less time with her in daycare. I am going to be working in the afternoon/evening and my wife will have her normal banker's hours. Since there is about a two hour overlap between when I need to leave and when my wife gets off work she will be in daycare those few hours.
My idea was to have her ride with me to daycare since it is on the way and then haul the empty trailer/seat/etc with me the rest of the way to work and back
I have read on sites like consumer reports that two-wheeled trailers are not good for riding on roads because their width presents a hazard and can be clipped by cars. Also, I used to pull my niece in one of these years ago and they have decent amount of rolling resistance even when unloaded (maybe some different tires could help?) and 12 miles pulling one of these can't be fun.
I liked the idea of a rear mounted bike seat...but the horizontal top tube might be a problem. I have only seen people use these with stepthrough beach cruisers and accustomed to bringing my leg over the back of the bike.
I did find this trailer but unfortunately, my 14 month old little girl is only 33.5" tall and this trailer states that it is for kids over 38"
My other option, and one I do not want to use, is to drive her to daycare, drive home, and then ride to work.
Are there other options to look at?
