I am assuming that photo should have been posted on the first of the fourth month.
Reasons why it’s not a good idea: Little things like Laws, human capacity for labour, physics, etc.

Andy in Germany
It happened on the first, does that count?

The camera never lies!!!
Dead right. Why don’t you try it with Trixie the trailer?

Who is going to the pedalling? 😉

I’m open to volunteers…

This is awesome!
Now to defeat inertia:
Perhaps a very low gear, with a lot of weight on the rear wheel, and a deceptively light trailer, on a tarmaced surface, down a hill… or perhaps not.
And perhaps about 20 people pushing from behind…

That puts the legendary Sean Kelly’s training regime well into the shade. But Andy…the trailer is not loaded! Lovely photo, it could actually be the Vale of Ffestiniog…second thoughts, no…the trailers are too clean and well maintained!

Ha. I knew I’d forgotten something. It does look like Wales sometimes here: there are some bits that you could almost swear were Scotland too…

Great photo. I guess you didn’t have much to haul because there’s only one trailer attached to the bike.

Yes, I was traveling light that day…

Great photo! Great idea!
But do own the right driving license for a trailer with more than one axle here in Germany? 😉

Cuh, typical, you can’t even pull a twelve ton three axle trailer with yout bicycle: It’s health and safety gone mad…
I wonder what would happen if I built a three axle bike trailer?
