General Discussion / Re: Bike Travel Weekend experience
« on: February 25, 2019, 02:16:41 pm »
Hi Liam,
Thank you for your interest in Bike Travel Weekend.

To answer your question, some people who register public Bike Travel Weekend trips have great success in getting others to join them while others have not had much interest. It helps if trip organizers promote their trip in other ways and not just by registering it. Promotional resources are available on the Promote Your Bike Travel Weekend Trip page at
These resources help trip organizers promote their trip to people in their community to people who may be interested.

Once you register a public trip your email address is available for people to contact you and ask you about joining. It's completely up to the trip organizer as to whether or not the companion is suitable to join. You probably want to ask the interested person a series of questions like their level of experience, depending on the route you have chosen. As far as I know, once a group connects about going on a Bike Travel Weekend trip everyone shows up and has a successful and enjoyable trip.

I hope you are able to participate in Bike Travel Weekend whether you go on your own or with a group.

Routes / Re: Planning Family Trip for next summer need suggestions

Yes, I agree that their planning resources are not as good as the Katy Trail and some other trails. They don't seem to have good resources for people planning multi-day trips. Rather, the focus seems to be out and back day rides. They would probably appreciate that feedback!

Did you see this interactive map?
It seems like a good resource.

I have never bicycled the Erie Canal Bike Trail, but I grew up in the area and would recommend taking some time to stop at Erie Canal Village in Rome, NY.

Hi Margaret,

I am riding the Katy Trail with my 12-year-old this summer. I can let you know how it goes. We are planning to ride it in 4-5 days and we're staying in B&Bs along the way. Last summer we did a 7-day bike tour in the San Juan Islands in Washington. It's not on bike paths, but the roads are low-traffic and it was fun to combine bike travel and ferry travel. The C&O Canal and GAP are on our lists for the near future. We've also done Adventure Cycling's Family Fun guided bike tours in Idaho (Trail of the Coeur D'Alenes) and Colorado (Summit County/Vail Pass bike paths).

I'm interested to hear what others have to say about family bike tours.
