Cyrus Does the C&O

This is the story of how my eight-year-old son bagged his first real overnight bikepacking trip on the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal.

A Bike Overnight with Charlie

 

Adventure is our business, and business is good, especially with a bike-traveling two-year-old.

Sakatah me!

Terry and Joshua completed a quick out-and-back S24O (Say "Es-Two-Four-Oh," a sub-24-hour bike trip). On a first ever bike overnight for either of them, they chose an easy, non-technical route for young Joshua.

D.C. Suburbs Overnight

Roberta Paul, an adventurous, self-described “suburban mom” takes her family of six and two dogs on a bicycle overnight to Burke Lake Campground, seven miles away, for this Memorial Day adventure. Calling it a great success, they look forward to more bike overnights!

Big Boy Adventure with Daddy

My youngest two boys Ben (4) and Brandon (3) seemed to be in no hurry to make the transition from diapers to underwear; that is, until the promise of a special adventure just with Dad became the perfect motivation! Last year's maiden voyage with Ben was a huge success, so I could hardly wait for the moment when Brandon was ready. Finally, last weekend I completed my second Bike Overnight, a 7-mile climb from our house to the nearest regional park campground, with Brandon in tow, his 12-inch-wheeled bike strapped on top of the trailer packed with most of our gear.
