Family ride

Several families did a 22 miler yesterday. What a great day in Missouri, the temp was 70 degrees and we had the pleasure of watching the Tour of Missouri go right through our town the day before. It was great inspiration. We are the three in the back (young girl in orange and two old folks in yellow). Our friend (leader in orange) is pulling her daughter with a bike connector. It works well for older kids and was much cheaper than a tag along.

Here the three of us are. You can't see my 1.5 yr old son in the trailer, but he is in there having a blast. Daughter is 6 and loves the trail a bike.

Our latest setup on a triple, a tandem ride, and an airport stop

Tandemranch 11-09-07 10:31 AM

Our family rides centuries and tandem rallies all over the western states. Our kids graduate from the baby trailer to the big bike at about 2 1/2 years old. Even with our littlest (3 yrs old) he is good to go for 30 to 50 milers.

Holy cow! That is beautiful! But I can't believe those unmatched helmets...

The tandem is an older TREK but about 2 years old to us. We used to ride it with our son on a trail-a-bike attached but I never cared for the tandem so we bought a stoker kit. I hope this download works - it was taken thia afternoon at Lake Montebello in Baltimore.

My chilly morning commute with jumpy cargo
My chilly morning commute with a jumpy cargo.
After this picture was taken we added Nashbar front rack & a basket to my bike to avoid the backpack hitting the cargo.

so cute...

I haven't had the kids out much now that it has been hovering around 32 degrees most days. Thanks for the inspiration.

5 bears on 4 wheels (and I've run out of helmets) - it got warmer and all the kids wanted to ride

Little girl and I went for a ride to the park yesterday. Here she is hamming it up for the camera where we stopped for a break. She loves ringing the bell from her seat up front. Note the very practical and classy Axiom diaper bag.

Here's me and my DD in the IBERT. I love this thing! We do around town trips, grocery shopping and such.

Otter- That is a great idea on the bell! It's off to my LBS to get one, IF IT'S EVER OPEN!

Off to the recycling center and then to the park to fly a kite.

G-d, these pics are fantastic. I'm only 24 and don't have a family of my own yet, but when I do, I sure hope that it looks like what you guys have in those pics. It's fantastic.

And P.S.- Good for you, raising your kids to enjoy 4-5 hours on a bike rather than 4-5 hours playing videogames!

Ambitious is right. She can't even reach the pedals! :lol:

I usually spend my time in the Mountain Biking forum and occasionally lurk in the Utility forum due to my latest acquisition, the Surly Big Dummy.

I got the Big Dummy as an 'in the city bike' for family rides and grocery runs. Thanks to the cargo hauling capabilities, a week's worth of groceries no longer means needing to take the car. The design of the Big Dummy also means it's a great way to go anywhere with my two daughters.

My daughters and the neighborhood kids love this bike. I give short rides around the neighborhood to the kids three at a time. The kids wait in line in front of my place like it's a bus stop.

In this pic we were on our way back from my daughters' swimming lessons and stopped for a self-portrait.

Taking a break at the park after a 10 mile ride...

This is my 14-month-old daughter's 9th or 10th ride in the trailer. Aside from trips to the grocery store and such, I've been increasing the distance each time. So far, she seems to be having fun though she tends to fall asleep on the longer rides. I'm thinking about bumping it up to 15 miles next.
