... this is considered to be Fun! Towed the carpet cleaner to & from the Kroger over the weekend.
Never tire of the looks & comments, it's awesome.

That is so awesome.  I just laughed when I saw your picture of the carpet cleaner in the bike trailer!

and this is the reward for the hard work cleaning the carpet! double bike trailer, modded the 1st one with the hitch to connect the 2nd.

Towing 3 mini-mustachians, the older 2 can pedal them own selves! Picking up a Family size Papa Murphy pizza. yes, a bit of a splurge, but we feed a family of 7 on $11 occasionally as a treat :)

Rockin!

I think I'd be concerned about traffic.  You've got a flag but I'm very suspicious about driver's ability to see a line of trailers.  What's your experience? Are you in a bike friendly place?

thanks & excellent questions! I'm extremely conservative about traffic, not just for self & trailer but with the 4 & 7 yr olds on bikes too.

experience wise, been using the bike as the primary form of transpiration since age 7, 29 years ago ;) Currently do about 3,500 mi/yr commuting and another 1,500 for pleasure including the family rides. Very cautious around traffic!

We stick to low-traffic neighborhood streets, lucky enough to live in suburbia. This particlaur route involves no major street crossings or anything.

We do occasionally take rides across towns including crossing busy streets, but stick to Sat and Sunday before about 10AM when the sheeple wake up and start heading out.
