comment Broken glass on the bicycle path, what to do?
There seems to be some debate about whether tires at their max pressure or at a lower pressure is optimal for avoiding flats. You seem to say that high pressure is better. @Andy256 (above) says that higher pressure is better. Do you have a source to quote or are you just citing your own personal experience?

@ChrisH, goggles are the best thing that I have found. They do block peripheral vision to some extent but in Ottawa our roads are so cold and sloppy that turning your head further to check your blind spot is a reasonable compromise. I find with regular glasses my eyes tear up the point of blindness.

comment One vs. Two wheeled bike trailers
Switching this to the accepted answer but wanted to add one note. After having tried both kinds of trailers I might add that dodging pot holes is almost impossible with a two wheeled trailer but is simple with a single wheel trailer. Single wheel trailers follow your bike wheels so if you miss a bump then so does the trailer. With a two wheeled bike trailer, you have to miss the bump with 3 wheels at different widths.
