Youth Bicyle Travel / Re: Good tours for teens reasonably priced?
« on: April 27, 2011, 09:44:54 am »
You might try a company called Teen Treks .  My daughter took their GAP/C&O trip last year and loved it.  It starts in Pittsburgh, PA which isn't too far from Ohio.  The trips are exclusively for teens -- they have a dozen or so kids with 2 adult leaders (typically >21 year old college kids).  They do mostly camping and carry everything on their bikes in true "self-contained" bike touring style practiced years ago by AYH and now by ACA.  But ACA requires kids to be accompanied by a parent on it's trips (which can work out very well for some families), while Teen Treks takes the kids by themselves.  My teen loved the independence of being away from parents and identified really well with the college student leaders (great mentor/roll models).  Cost is around $125 per day but varies depending upon trip length.  FYI, I have no affiliation with Teen Treks.  Just a satisfied customer (actually my daughter was the customer).
