Depending on how heavy you are. You might either get away by running higher pressures, or you might need wider tires, or you might need to use BOTH wider tires AND higher pressure. It all depends on how much clearance you have between rim and the ground when you're on the bike. Higher pressure/wider tire will increase that distance, and that's what you need to avoid damage to tire and rim on landing.

Who needs a bigger force to keep them moving a man or a child?

It depends. If you want to lift them up, you have to act a force equal to their weight, so a heavier person would need a force with greater magnitude. If you want to move them horizontally on a plane with friction the heavier person needs a force with greater magnitude again. On a plane without friction no force needs to be acting on them in order to move.
