I have a Croozer 737 (made by Chariot) it was much less expensive than a chariot and all of the attachments trailer/jogger/stroller) are included. I run, bike and walk with mine, I even go across town to get my groceries with it, it holds lots of stuff! I love mine and use it all the time but it is pretty basic. My sister has a chariot and she loves hers too but she paid a pretty penny for it......I never felt like I needed anything that fancy. BUT....... the nice thing about Chariots is you can purchase cross country ski/hiking kits that are like a rickshaw. That might be up your alley too! Or course, that is if you are somewhere where there is snow and/or hiking trails. Good luck!

I have the B.O.B. jogging stroller it is WONDERFUL (I'm a runner). It's fine for the speed of roller blading but I don't think it's a good idea to rollerblade with a baby in the jogger unless you are a serious expert or on flat, even pavement/sidewalk with little or no traffic. If you fall and have your hands on the jogger it could tip the baby or push the baby over backwards. How old is the baby? Over 2 years? If so, it might be okay of course it's your call. I don't like the idea of trailers on bikes if you are riding anywhere other than a bike path with only bike and foot traffic for safety reasons. Try the seat that you can attach to the back of your bike... or spend the money on a babysitter for an hour instead and take some time to ride or rollerblade solo...
