Family Adventures

Young children like to stop and play at every opportunity. Parents and grandparents like to watch and participate with varying degrees of patience. We recognize these mixed needs, and adapt with sensitivity. When building groups, we aim to match families or similar ages. Alternatively, these trips can be organized exclusively for your family. In either case, we will make the best plans possible for your family. There are sometimes discounts available when three people share a room. If a third participant 12 years old or younger shares a room with two other full-paying guests, they receive a 20% adventure discount. This becomes a 50% discount if the third participant is 4 years old or younger and can accept a temporary bed.

Children's bikes, trailer-bikes, and trailers, when rented in association with a tour or other adult bicycle rentals, receive a 25% discount. Burley d'Lite trailers, with a total weight of 17 lbs, and a towing capacity of 100lbs are available for those who are yet too young to pedal. They are suitable for one or two children, and have storage pockets, rain covers, and sunscreens. Please reserve these well in advance to be certain of their availability. Trailer bikes attach to the back of any adult bikes to turn them into tandems suitable for children up to 4' tall. The children can assist you by pedaling, or can simply freewheel as you do all the work while they focus their attention on the passing sights and your conversation. Full tandem bikes are also available in some locations. Please call for details.
