Thanks for all the info! I've not run across the term "long john" before, but the photos remind me of "bakfiets" -- sort of a generic word for a cargo bike? I've been seeing a bunch of those where I live recently, they seem like a great solution for families with small kids for around-town riding.

Thanks for the careful thought you put into your answer! I hope I didn't convey that it would be "easy" by calling it "feasible." But there are lots of good ideas here to think about: equipment, weather, going on test rides.

Right, I hadn't thought of the difficulty of getting going again, that's a good point.

Ha, yes! A trailer for the diapers. :) I'm not all that confident about long hours, but it seems like we could stop easily enough along the way.

comment Is my stopping dangerous when Idaho Stop is de facto but not legal?
@StephenTouset Do you use the "braking" hand signal when stopping? I use it myself but am curious whether people know what it means.

comment What are the most significant factors affecting downhill cruising speed?
Doesn't the inertial tensor of the wheels also come into play? Putting wheel mass further from the axle requires more energy to get spinning at a given rate, right?
