Some observations about riding and modifying a Christiania Trike...

First daycare run.
On Thursdays the youngest is at daycare and I normally pick him up around 5pm so that means I also have to take the oldest who finishes school at 3pm. The trip home from daycare has a couple of long inclines and with both boys in the box my previous average speed was about 9km/h. Today the average speed was 17km/h! And get this - on the long incline where I was also battling a headwind I overtook another cyclist. The poor guy (dressed in lycra!) is probably still in shock as my heavily burdened trike flew past him at 20km/h!
