We're helping them grow to love the great outdoors. They've already grown attached to our bikes, having been trailered around after us from the moment they could hold their heads up. Our children's enjoyment of travel and the outdoors has steadily grown over their short lives. You can read about our earliest Cycle Toddling adventures here. And in 2005 we completed a ten month family adventure cycling, sailing, road tripping and railroad riding around New Zealand, Independent Samoa, USA and Canada on our 'In Search of Families In Search of Adventure' Tour.
Since then we've been touring more locally, in our own backyard in Cumbria (2006) , across the North Sea in Western Sweden (2006) and riding from end to end in the UK, from Lands End to John O Groats (2007) . For 2008, we turned ourselves into Pedalling Pilgrims to tackle the ancient pilgrim's route to Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain. In 2009 we managed to get another three year old on a tandem for an experimental trip to Holland. In 2010 we explored the Baltics on a ride to celebrate the Moomins 65th birthday. 2011 saw us ride from Munich to Krakow via the Danube and the Slovakian High Tatras. And for 2012 we spent six weeks exploring Iceland and The Faroes. Who knows what's next?
