Title: Natchez Trace with a 10 year old
Post by: tpejoe on April 23, 2010, 11:55:21 pm
I am planning a 8 day ride from Nashville, TN to Natchez, Mississippi with my 10 year old. The Trace is a park road and not too isolated. We will travel about 50 miles a day....450 miles total.  Apparently there are lots of riders on this road.  Does anyone have any thoughts on issues of biking with a child on the Natchez Trace?

Only that if you are riding on a tandem or using a tag-along with your kid, 50 miles a day ain't a big deal. If the kiddo is riding his/her own bike this might be a bit much unless you've been doing a lot of training rides.
