I'm sure our members will give you some great tips, but there's a good blog by Steph here: http://mangoandlebsgocycling.wordpress.com/
Hi, I regularly take my (small) 14 year old daughter to school on our tandem before cycling on to work. I also use it to take her to scouts. I find it is important to
a) Plan the journey carefully to avoid main roads
b) Allow plenty of time and
c) Allow for the fact that she is not as strong as I am and
may tire easily - i.e. assume that in the worst case scenario
I will have to do all the work. This is particularly important at
junctions - allow extra time for pulling out because you will not
be able to accelerate hard.
d) If you are new to cycling take it easy to avoid picking up injuries.
Hope this helps
