Car-free camping with kids

Popular among reasons cited for car ownership, even among those living in bike-friendly settlements, are having children and needing to get into nature. As in driving there. But bike camping with children is a joy. Paul and his family know it, too.

    I totally agree that cars are unnecessary, even camping with a toddler, but I have to admit to opting for a canoe instead. How the heck do you get enough gear on a bicycle? Or maybe the better question is, what do you leave behind :)?

    Did you follow the link, Debora? Not with an ordinary bicycle! Who’s to say you can’t take a canoe, too? How do you get the canoe to the put-in if you don’t live aside the water? We left behind a sleeping bag for son, because a blanket was sufficient.

    Too funny, no, I didn’t (I followed the car free link and got distracted) – I thought everything you had was in the picture above, and I was in shock and awe! We live on water (or can get a car to put in), so that makes the canoe part easy. I used to work for Outward Bound, and had to portage canoes everywhere for maintenance etc – sure could have used that bike tow!!
