My first kid-free foray into the backcountry taught me plenty about myself and the importance of disconnecting, no matter what life demands of us.
I grew up learning how to bike by using a tricycle, and then a bike with training wheels. I vividly remember the moment I first felt what it was like to balance on two wheels, on my own. By the time I had learned to balance without any aids, I was six or seven years old. But now, a few companies, such as Burley, are changing the way kids learn to bike.
I feared that the little one was not born to be wild and that we were imposing our way of travelling on her. As it turned out, my fear was baseless and our trip was a great experience for all three of us. I’d love to share some findings of how we approached different aspects of the trip to make it a success.
