That would be a shock for any wouldbe thieves !!

I have thought of electrifying my bike to help pull a kiddie bike trailer with my daughter in it. She is handicapped and can't walk more than a couple hundred feet at a time. She is sixty pounds, I am two hundred pounds, and the trailer is pretty light, so we weigh about the same as your setup, but I think the two wheels on the trailer would add a lot more drag in the soft spots of the playa. It certainly does when I take her to the beach, as soon as we hit the sand it's nearly impossible to push the bike and the trailer about 15' to the bike racks, it's much more difficult than just pushing a bike without a trailer through the sand, so I am not sure if an electric motor would help other than letting me coast on the hard parts and save energy for where we'd get bogged down.... Or are the soft spots on the playa not that bad? What do you think?
