After a dismal UK summer which consisted of work, poor health, and crap weather I haven't been out on my bike much at all. We were supposed to ride down to Austria in August but an impending house move put paid to that. My wife has developed osteoarthritis from head to toe and this year was going to be our last "long" trip on the bike, but due to the house move was a no go. She can still manage a 150km ride on a good day but when we go abroad we have to do about 600km days to get to our destination. I'm pretty peeved about missing out on Austria and have started considering a trailer to haul the bike to our destination which will allow us still to ride in stunning locations. I wouldn't want an open trailer where the bike is visible because if you tow it in wet weather the bike gets covered in road crap and muck because it's so close to the car. Not only that, if it's out of sight, nobody can tamper with it. So if I go down this route I'll either buy a fully enclosed trailer or build one myself. If you were in my position, what would you do. The only other option I have is to ditch the wife, ride off into the sunset and live the dream.
