The situation: wife and I both have road tourers; our 6 year old (~23kg), who has a ‘bmx’ style bike (pink!) has been balancing for a few months now, but has not quite yet progressed to on-road cycling, and our 3 yr old (15Kg) is almost pedalling a trike. We have a 5dr hatchback car, and a Hollywoof F1 bike rack, which has only, pre-children, been used for our two touring bikes.
We want to get away for a weekend cycling trip - so our best bet (?) is probably:
Me (73 Kg) pulling our 6 yr old on a tag along (Edit: I gather that a tag along should be used for a child who can already ride independently), and my wife (55kg) with bike seat with 3 yr old
However..... just wondering whether our 3 yr old would be too heavy/unstable for my wife's bike, and whether it would be best for her to pull a tag along ~30 Kg , and for me to have the child seat. A friend of ours says that on the school bike run her 3 yr old is prone to move around a lot in the bike seat.
