Kemmer's thread featuring his tandem + trail-a-bike + trailer made me realise that we don't have a sticky thread so we can all show off pictures of our road trains and family cycling adventures. Maybe this could be it?

OK, I'll start...

My wife and two oldest daughters decided to ride to the start of RAGBRAI in Iowa. We live in the Twin Cities in Minnesota. They found two other riders willing to tag along for five days and about 400 miles using this triple and trailer setup. They create a "team" name each time - flamingos, rubber duckies, and this year it's Team Croak with their frogs.

2007 will be their third annual trip to the start. My wife and I ride across Iowa each July, as our vacation.

We enjoy cycling all over the Cities with our girls.

This was with my 3 and 4 year old kids. This weekend we plan to ride a charity ride with my dad and granddad so that we have 4 generations at on 40 mile ride (ages 88 to 4). I know I will be the weak link of the ride.

I'm pretty proud of my little team and it from the looks of it I'm not the only one.

You inspired the thread so it's all your fault :p :beer:

Please post a few pictures in this thread of that 4-generation weekend ride :)

You guys look great in the matching jerseys. :D

The more I read, the more I am amazed at everyones enginering skills.

Is that your own invention of adding the trailerbike to your rear rack ? I ask because I have a hard time adding a trailerbike to my bike because the seatpost is so high.

Is your son ok with sitting up so high ? He seems pretty comfortable with it.

That particular trail-a-bike is the Burley Piccolo. It is the only one that connects like that. They are considered to be one of the best performing ones out there. The others are prone to develop play in the hitch.

Yes they are fine as seen by their smile on their first ride. The child stoker kits cause you to continue to raise the seat as the kid grows. Hopefully when it get too top heavy they are tall enough to reach the pedals with extentions.

Here's a pic of my old Trek 800 and our new tag-along bike. I've had the Trek for 15 years or so and it's still going strong. I was hesistant to buy a new tag-along bike because I was worried it might not get much use, but it's turn out to be a great investment. The older kids love riding it with me and we travel all around our little town up and down the hills together.

I haven't yet tried sticking our two-kid bike trailer to the tag-along yet - too many hills around here, I don't think I'd be able to make it. However, if we go to the bike trail, I might try it out....

Here's our 2 yr old running to catch up to our 5 yr old who already snagged the good seat:

This was from yesterday's dry-run on my wife's (hopeful) bike-commute to her new gig.

Here's one I dug up from a 25 mile M.S. group ride in 1994 with my oldest daughter (8yrs. old then).

And here's another from 1994, me with all of my Stokers...we're all older and bigger now, especially me.

Well, we went for the most expensive option which I didn't even realize was available, Adams t-a-b from LBS:

Boy is he thrilled. Hard to get him off it while awake (except for when we get to various ice cream destinations)

Love COD's matching t-shirts in the pic above. If only they could have arranged it so each t-shirt had a consecutive segment of the bike, from stem to stern...

While mom has one tag along on a tagalong, dad has two tag along on a double tagalong (three if you count the grasshopper on the back our youngest)! There is not much better than a family bike ride!

Dangit, 5 minutes to find a decent pic, and it's 7 times too big to post.

Here we are, a couple of years ago. I still use the bike trailer with the little one, but the big one has her own bike now. They loved/ love that bike trailer!:D And, of course, my avatar is also the bike and bike trailer!

hero419 08-31-07 01:13 PM

how young is to young for a trailer?
is 3 months to young?
I saw a site that talked about a rough ride.

caloso 08-31-07 02:11 PM

Our pediatrician said that the child needs to be able to hold his or her head upright without support. 1 year is a rough rule of thumb. I think our twins had their first bike ride at 11.5 months.

Here is my Grand Son with my Craiglist find Gary Fisher "Freeloader" 1/2 bike.
The SMILE says it all to me!
