Sluggish ride in this morning - still not feeling 100%, but got there eventually, slowed down even more with a cool sourtherly headwind.
Yep I have the same problem towing my little guy on a weehoo, even in an articulated vehicle they can be a pain to get through
Thought about lifting the bike over the fence, but while 35kg is manageable, the dimensions make it pretty unwieldy, so I had a lengthy detour around one of these, and pushed the bike through some strategically placed thorny shrubs around another, grrr.
