Toilet breaks for a 8yo girl
 
My 8yo daughter wants to do longer rides with me. But where I like to ride there aren't any many toilets or traffic and sometimes they may be 2km too far. :)

Any ideas? She is mainly concerned about modesty and 'aim'.

Have her practice going in the bushes. Not glamorous, but it works. :)

Have you looked at that fem wee product

I just wanted to say what a terrific daughter you have!

Additionally, the only thought I have is to plan a route where there might be a cafe about so that you could ride, eat a nibble and take a loo break. I would imagine that as a young girl modesty is VERY important to her.

There you go. You're a father now, not a cyclist. Until she's older, you don't have a more important job than helping her grow up, and that includes aiming her toward lifelong fitness. If she doesn't develop those habits as a child, she likely never will.

My 5 year old uses one of these folding potties for "emergency out and about wees". We often use it without the bag too, as a kind of squatting ring, much easier to aim that way without having to take all her weight at the same time...

A portable outhouse could be carried on a trailer. I have a portable closet that weighs ounces. With a seat and extra hardware for quick setup, it may weigh as much as a shovel.

Bought one for the wife and eventually persuaded her to use it. No going back and it now goes everywhere

First off, what is the area like where you're riding? Forested, open land, a mix of forest and open land? That sort of thing Aim isn't really an issue, since she'll be squatting, or using a fallen log as a "seat" type thing. There is a trick to going standing up too.
