    I'm getting worried now. One grandchild and another on the way.

    If this was news to you, then you seriously need to read the travel books by Joe Kurmaskie, the "Metal Cowboy".

    After taking his two of his boys from Washington (state) to Washington (DC) on a single touring bike, trail-a-bike and trailer a couple of years ago, last year he toured Canada on a rig similar to your photo, with his wife riding chase on her own touring bike.

    I travel the Trans Canada Highway through Northern Ontario and the praries all the time. This time of year, there are scads of bike tourists on the highway.
    A couple of weeks ago, I passed a 4 rider bike. If there had been a pullout available in the next while, I would have pulled up and waited to snap their picture on the way by. Unfortunately, no such opportunity presented itself.
    Gearhubs demystified and other cool stuff.

    Truly so! Seeing such a rig in person had to be something.

    I have a question----

    I see quite a few family groups out of Mum and Dad and at least two kids. The kids- if capable and able have their own bikes but the real young"uns" are on tag alongs or baby seats.

    So why is it that the baby seat or tag along is always set up on mums bike?

    Perhaps it is because mums bike is always the heavier and older of the two adult bikes and Dad does not wish to chance damaging his C.F. frame with the lightweight wheels and Dure Ace running gear

    But locally we have a Mum that has 3 kids. Two in a trailer and one on a saddle on the top tube in front of Mum.

    This was two ladies on the tandems - a grandmother or perhaps two. No dad here. These ladies come from a neighborhood about 1-2 miles away to the trail.

    I don't know the reason for sure, but I suspect it's moms want to be in control of the precious cargo. My wife has a little trailer for her chihuahua and it will always be on her bike...as she says, "I trust me more than you". I respond "Well, I have many thousands of miles experience and you have...well, none, but that's good if it works for you."

    Ouch - I don't think you have quite learned the fine art of biting ones tongue.

    After almost 30 years of marriage I am quit sure I said it in a good enough tone to get away with it.

    However the next group ride we do together I insist you hook up the trailer and bring the dog. Maybe I can keep up.

    We just crossed the 32 year mark, with raging change of life hormones there is no amount of jest that would not get my head handed to me.

    Do we need to get you a trail-a-bike Bob?

    You don't seem to have any trouble keeping up with me.
