Pedal Pioneers: A Guide to Bicycle Travel with Kids

Pedal Pioneers: A Guide to Bicycle Travel with Kids is designed to help teachers, youth group leaders, and passionate individuals organize their own group youth tours for kids who can bicycle independently.
In five sections, Pedal Pioneers walks leaders through each stage of organizing a trip for kids. The guide covers many of the details that leaders need to know when considering or planning a bike tour with kids, with chapters on partnerships, participant recruitment and retention, route planning, bicycle safety and riding techniques, equipment and clothing, hydration and fuel, first aid and health, overnight accommodations and more.

The guide, which can be ordered at the Adventure Cycling online store, comes packaged in a user-friendly binder with a sample magazine, stickers, safety information and a discounted membership coupon.
