Cycle Touring – with children

All of us on bicycles

In the spring of 2016, my husband and I decided to go on a crazy adventure with our little ones.

We mashed inspiration from people like Bryanna and Craig, from Crazy Family Adventure, John and Nancy, from Family on Bikes, and Allen from Janapar, and decided to go on our own, somewhat spontaneous, bicycle touring adventure with our kids.

K-girl is 6, G-boy is 4, and M-girl turned 2 on June 11th. Hubby and I are in our mid-30’s.

We decided to attempt riding our bicycles from Kingston, ON, to London, ON – a 557-kilometre cycling trip, mostly along a gorgeous waterfront trail as well as Highway 2.

We had the time of our lives, and want to share our experience with you. Sign up for the mailing list to stay up-to-date on our adventures (there will definitely be more)!

Here are some blog posts about our trip – and about all things Family cycling related 🙂
