One of my pet projects over the winter is to get us set up to go on family picnic rides. I've been trying to figure out the logistics of 2 adults and 4 kids. Me, my wife and our son (14 today!) will be able to ride with no problem. Our 7-yr old daughter is still on trainers, and really doesn't have the stamina for a long ride. Our 4-yr and 15-month old daughters need to go in a trailer.
My idea is to pull the 7-yr old on a trail-a-bike with a trailer hooked to it for the other 2. I've looked for 3-kid trailers and haven't found any. The only real monkey wrench I can see is that I'd like to pull them on a trike. This would allow (I think) balance without having to move. Also putting a cargo box on the back of the trike would allow the picnic supplies to be hauled as well. What I don't know is that if a trail-a-bike or similar product can be used with a trike. I'm not overly worried about if I can pull it. The gearing can always be worked out. Hauling won't be an issue either as I'm installing a hitch on the back of our van and will pull the bikes on a trailer.
Oh, one more thing. I'm not planning on purchasing a trike. When I get my new bike around the beginning of the year, I plan to acquire a conversion kit for the junker I'm on now because I think that'd be more fun .
So after reading all this, lol, does anyone know if a trail-a-bike will work on a trike?
