I carried my road bike on the Big Dummy a week ago, but that was sans kids. Today my road bike was done getting tuned up and I accomplished my first two kids plus one adult bike carry. I put the front wheel in one FreeLoader and the front of the bike in the other, with the rear wheel dragging behind.
I have to admit I thought we’d have to stop and reconfigure things during the 1.5-mile trip home, but it held just fine. Special thanks to the toddler for distracting me from the stress of packing the bike by biting me on the butt and leaving me smarting. And then for head butting his brother the first two blocks of transport to distract me from worrying about the bike not staying put.
I think I’d like to eventually have a hitch on the back of the bike (I have a picture of Edward’s hitch in this post) to more easily tow a bike.
The Xtracycle Bikes in Tow Flickr gallery is pretty inspirational.
