    How was your season (2011)

    Xmas is almost there, the snow has a arrived and the season is slowly coming to an end here in Switzerland. Our season was different from what we are normally used to but it panned out much better then we could ever imagine.

    I would be afraid to post the reply... Hordes of super responsible parents would start to accuse me of all kinds of things...

    Lisa was born November 30. Here in Switzerland riding kind of stops in October/November then picks up in April again we started riding with Lisa in May so at say 5 months. We started with stuff that you could basically compare with a ride in the stroller (along the lake boulevard that kind of stuff). Slowly stepped things up a bit and now we also ride trails with the trailer, Lisa seems to like it and that is what counts for me.

    GREAT VIDEO BY THE WAY! Seems you had a pretty good season.

    I understand exactly were you are coming from there. Some people shocked when I told Them we took our boy to the summer house 6 days old. It's great to hear that you started young. The outdoors is healthier than couped up inside.

    It's the SingleTrailer made by Tout Terrain which is a German company. I believe you can order direct via their website.

    In the UK:
    Tout Terrain Singletrailer - Fairweather Cycles

    First we thought "quite expensive" but then we thought "like we're riding cheap bikes" so we just bought it. Riding with the trailer takes some getting used to but being able to go out there with the whole family makes up for the weight, the sluggish steering etc.

    Thanks and excellent post! We moved from the Netherlands to Switzerland in 2003 and never, ever had the feeling we wanted to go back. Great country for biking, skiing, boarding, climbing and all other out door stuff we like to do.

    Uzzi thanks so much for the link. Do you think the single wheeler would have major advantages over the two wheel trailers?

    I only rode when the weather was nice...

    The destination of a "road ride":



    A stop just before a more tricky piece of trail:



    This pic... I think I took it to pinpoint a fallen tree on Sportstracker.

    It can't tip over or at least not as easy. The two wheelers can get pretty bouncy as well, so I believe the SingleTrailer to be comfier. You can definitely do more challenging terrain with a SingleTrailer. Disadvantage is that it fits only one.
