I have two children - aged 5 and 2 - and I can't drive for medical reasons. I could really do with a way of getting around when buses aren't going my way. I'm not very fit at all, but I am working on it, and I am a bit scared of falling off a bike, but I will just have to get over that. Anyway, I live in a "new town" so pedestrians often take completely different routes to cars (lots of subways and concrete bridges etc) although there are some bits where you have to walk by a road. I would love to do the school run and my Avon round on a bike of some kind, but I'm not sure what is best for transporting the kids. The five year old has her own scooter and bike, but she is really slow and I'm not sure she could do the mile to/from school and the mile to/from nursery if she was tired as well. I've been admiring the little trike that nisha off same smile has (if you watch cbeebies) but I'm not sure how practical it would be, or I think my other option would be one of those child trailers. IS there anywhere I can hire one (and a bike) for a couple of weeks to see what I think? I'm thinking that anything that can transport children can also transport brochures and makeup around as well (although tbh that is mostly just getting to and from the bit of my round that I am doing that day - I have a big round cos I am super Avon lady) All ideas gratefully received.
