My husband may be getting a job on Kwajalein, a tiny military base island in the Marshall islands. I really don't want to go, but we might, so I'm trying to wrap my head around how we might be able to do this before we find out. (Please don't make us go! )
The island is TINY! You can walk from one end to the other in minutes. There are no cars (except a handful of official vehicles). Everyone rides bicycles. I have a 4 y/o and an 8 m/o. How would you do this most safely? I was thinking that since there isn't far to go and we would be going very slowly and with no cars around, I could just put both kids into a bike trailer and pull it behind me. Not sure how I would do that, though, since my son is still a baby and won't fit a helmet. Can I just put him in a bike trailer anyway if we are going very slowly and there is no traffic anywhere and there's never far to ride? We would have to ride to the mess hall maybe three times a day for meals, to the store and to the beach and no trip would ever be more than 1/2 a mile.
I had considered putting my son in a car seat in the trailer and have my daughter ride a bike with her helmet, but she is a terrible rider and a biiiiig complainer about riding, so I don't see that as a feasible option, either.
