    Bicycle trailer for a small adult

    Mrs. Skipper and I have decided that we should find a way to take our daughter (Angela) along with us, from time to time, when we go riding. Angela is 33 years old. She has cerebral palsy and is unable to walk. She is about 4' 6" tall and weighs about 90 lbs. She would not be able to offer much help in getting her into and out of the trailer. We think she would enjoy this kind of thing because she seems to like roller coasters. We have a tandem to which we would like to attach a trailer in which Angela could ride. We would only ride on the local rail trail with Angela in tow.

    Anyone have any ideas, experience, links, etc?

    Thanks, Skipper (and family)

    Take this one to the touring forums methinks - they're the mob with the experience in hauling loads around. I've got my own thoughts on what might work, but this is so far outside of my personal experience, I'm probably better keeping quiet.

    I thought I'd see if anyone in this group had any experience with adult children in this situation. The touring forum was going to be my next choice. Thanks.
