Any Freewheeling Adventure can be booked by family groups. If young children are the focus, we suggest that you contact us to discuss the suitability of your choice, but really, any trip can be handled with good guides and copious vehicle support.
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. We adjust the pace so that the youngest or oldest set the pace, and you should be aware that faster explorers may have some waiting time.
Once you have reserved, unless you want the trip kept private, we will do our best to attarct other families with similar ages.
There are 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. We avoid the use of temporary beds for adults, but if you can accept one for your children, it can open up good sharing possibilities.
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. Tandem bikes are also available in some locations. Please call for details.
