Totcycle | Family Biking

Tots on bikes, kids as cargo, family cycling, and other high-occupancy velo goodness.

Not caring how much our bikes weigh since 2008.

« Bike from Ballard to Bainbridge and Back »

Kidical Mass Seattle's 2013 family camping trip is upon us!

We depart Sat July 27th, from Ballard Commons Park at 10am (meet at 9:45am). We'll take the Locks to Elliott Bay Trail route (no Hempfest this year!), so mind your width. Bike onto the Ferry, lunch at Pegasus Coffee House, and then a hilly ride to Fay Bainbridge Park for a fun overnight, returning the next day.

This is a great way to dip your toes into touring/brief overnights on a bike with your kids. Because of the hills and distances involved, we recommend you bring younger kids as passengers on your bike.

Lessons learned from last year:

  • Bainbridge is HILLY, with long rollers. But doable, albeit slowly, and with occasional walking of bike.
  • Cargo bikers overpack. Because we can. 
  • Dinner and breakfast (plus snacks) will be the only meals you need to pack, unless you plan to stay longer at Fay Bainbridge.

Any questions, or need help with logistics? Post a comment, or join the conversation on the Seattle Family Biking group.
