15 Tips For Happy Bike Tours With A Toddler

In May 2014, we spent 3 weeks cycling around Switzerland.

Since we were with Luke (2 years old), our pace was quite slow. We had no fixed destinations and rarely covered more than 40km a day, leaving plenty of time for playground stops, flower picking and other distractions.

Now, some 7 months later, we’ve finally found time to put together a little film of our trip: 15 Ways To Entertain A Toddler On A Bike Tour.

    Hi I just saw this video and it made me smile. Thanks for sharing simple good tips for kids on bicycle. I am from Singapore and been leading a social sunday rides for all folks for over 4 years. We have a group in Singapore called lovecycingsg. The basic idea is to play tourist on our own backyard. How many times we drove pass a place and didn’t really know much about it. With a bicycle, we can explore and see.

    I have a 7 year old girl which I ride with her around my place. This is how it look.

    Lastly I like ur website which is informative, fun and fluff free. Keep it real and looking forward to read ur journeys!

    warm regards

    Loved watching this! We are currently on a one month cycle tour of northern Tasmania with our two year old girl and her five big brothers. We are having a great time! Your blog has been really helpful!

    Loved the video. We are currently planning a 2-3 month trip down the Pacific Coast of the USA from where we live in Vancouver, BC to the Mexican border with a 3.5 year old and a 1 year old (yes we are crazy) and the suggestion to bring balloons is so simple but so genius. But I really need to know where you got the sun shade for the Yepp? I think I may have read that you made it? If so do you have instructions, tips, anything? We are using Yepp seats and that looks great for protecting the little people. Thanks!
