    The first bikepacking overnighter.

    It was time for the first bikepacking overnighter for the eight year old boy. I've been out on backpacking overnighters with the kids now for a few years, both winter and summer, so I thought it was time to extend this to mountain bikes. I have trails starting literally from my backyard, but most of them are not very child or beginner friendly. Still, we managed to piece together some trails that were not too difficult and rode for one hour of actual riding time before making camp.






















    And finally, a little video:

    Fantastic. I get the kids out bikepacking any time I can. It's a great way to teach kids a range of life skills without actually having to "teach" them.
