bike trailer bike rack

I made this a while back. To allow my daughter to go on longer bike rides I got a bike trailer. Of course she would like to ride on the easy parts, so I added a bike rack to the bike trailer to carry her teeny bike. Its made with 1x1 ash, a couple of u-bolts, and a few nuts and bolts.

The bike on the rack is an 8" frame bike with rear suspension. Pretty amusing on a little kid's bike. It was a prototype bike we got at Bay Cycle in Whitby. The bike rack carries a 10" bike nicely too.

Xof1 on the road again...under Monkey power

The driver of the Xof1 solar car was sometimes referred to as The Monkey. Its a reference to Ham the Chimp who was a passenger on a Mercury capsule. Also so that the Xof1 builders could refer to the semi-imaginary monkey shocking devices in the car. In Ontario Xof1 is not allowed on the road due to regressive EV licensing policies, so Marcelo, The Monkey is pulling the car from Niagara Falls to Toronto.
