Towing bikes with the Yuba

The Yuba’s “Towing Tray” (basically a slot in the platform you would usually rest your feet) is so handy for dropping bikes at the mechanic or taking the kids bikes to the park. Or stealing bikes if your into organised crime. I really want/need to see a Yuba towing a Yuba, towing a Yuba. I would like to be the first to do it, however if you have already done it, please send photos, and a tutorial.

This is the day I picked up our Yuba. I had to ride there to get it. That is my regular bike in the towing tray. Try getting two bikes on to a car that easily!

Well we always start with 4 then see how much room is left

Here’s 4 kids in the box and 1 riding them around. Hey, that’s more kids than our car can take!

not really a challenge, but 2 on the back gives them oodles of room, just like business-class

even uncle mick will jump on for a bakery run (as long as we stop at the bottle)

Transporting our Yuba Mundo by car

This is how we transport our Yuba. it's actually pretty easy. We own an old Crummydore and its fits nice. Teeny bit of wind resistance, but hey. We took it away on a 2 week beach holiday with us where we did about 30 short trips on it. Much more fun than driving from the house to the beach and no problems parking right at the beach when it's a hot day and chocablock with cars.
