What options are out there for transporting two kids that are two big for a trailer, but not quite up to riding the distance solo in a reasonable time?
I've been using the trail-a-bike to take our 6-year old to school. (and 3.5 miles each way). Soon her younger sister will be starting school.
So far the most likely candidate I've seen is the Bike Friday Family triple. It does seem to take a trail-a-bike and a trailer. However, we get a little nervous plunking down that much for something site-unseen. The Co-motion periscope looked like a decent candidate, but when low enough, there was no clearance for a trail-a-bike.
Other tandems with stoker kits may be an option, but again we just have to buy and hope.
Then there are walmart tandems...
