My kids (5yo boy, 3yo girl) and I have been building up some mileage this Spring and are now planning our first overnight camping tour for saturday/sunday. The route is 24 miles with one moderate climb. There are good rest points every 4-5 miles and the roads have bike lanes or wide shoulders.
The kids ride an Adams tandem pulled by my 80's Univega Sportour. Another family is joining us at the campground and will haul all our camping equipment.
The trick will be to keep the kids happy and cooperative. My daughter (stoker) tends to pinch her brother when she gets bored and things quickly go downhill from there. I've been working on my cruise director skills to keep them entertained.
We'll be carrying: water, snacks, sunscreen, bug repellant, jackets, tire pump, and flat repair kit. Am I forgetting something?
Wish us luck
