Trailer Riders
« on: June 13, 2007, 11:13:10 PM »
I was wondering, if there are any other trails aside from the double track that I would be able to bring my 2 girls in a trailer on.  The trailer is a 2 child side by side.  I don't think sandpine or riverloop could handle the trailer, any suggestions?

Not in Alafia.  At boyette you will much more miles on double track roads.  You can also take into the East Medows trail safely.  At MB, you can do the whole main trail with it.  Just stay on the main trail and don't go into other smaller narrow trails.   Just make sure you put helmets on the kids since it gets bumpy.

my daugther loves the multi use trail at alafia... i know its not much.. but they cant ride that long anyways.. they get bored and sore from the bumps...  in the mean time you have the PLAYGROUND for  them to have fun while you go and ride some more while your wife and you take turns watching the kids..

this is what my wife and i do every sunday..

We had an old burley when I was growing up, it flipped a couple of times while on pavement, I think that on the dirt it would be terrible and unrideable. Those skinny wheels would suck on sand and roots, and I don't think you could make all those tight turns.
