Towing older children and adults
« on: January 21, 2014, 04:07:16 pm »
Does anyone have insight on options for towing or riding with adults with severe physical disability / old age? Related traffic laws? Safe trailers or devices. How are they rated for road travel?

Check this web site.  The trail behind " bike " would not work with adults or individuals with balance issues. I have seen trikes ( two wheels upfront ) with a bench type seat upfront for the passenger. Have also seen wheelchair type transport up front powered by a trike. Perhaps both were custom bikes.

More info on biking for disabled adults. The " duet" looks functional for the purpose.
