I've recently bought a Burley D'Lite trailer and Mongoose hybrid bike so that I can still get some riding when I am doing Daddy Daycare with my two children on weekends. We are having a great time except that I am finding the whole process of loading the kids into the trailer, hitching and getting going and also when stopping a bit 'messy' and has resulted in the resting bike falling over a couple of times when I am concentrating on the children and trailer. My principal concern is to avoid damage to the bike.
I assume that someone out there has worked out the solution - either a bike stand or the right 'order' to do things so that everything and everyone is happy. My kids are 3 years and 18 months so are not really all that controllable yet. I have begun to change the order of doing things so that I hitch the trailer to the bike only when everyone is in and we are about to go and unhitch at the other end before letting everyone out so that I can put the bike somewhere safe - it is a bit time consuming - anyone been able to master this in a different way?
