One year to 5 years : The Child Trailer

This is towed behind the bike, usually by a clamp on the left dropout. It is normally fine for two children with a combined age of 5 or 6, depending on their size of course. They can end up fighting for elbow room before too long!

For some reason the minimum age on these is lower than on child seats, but in the past we've strapped a child car seat into the trailer in order to carry a newborn.
