How to Plan a Family Biking Vacation

Damiano Rivera de Rosales logged more than 2,500 miles on a bike before he was two years old. His trick? Two bicycle-loving parents who were determined to enjoy adventurous vacations with their son.

Several years before Damiano was born, Ignacio Rivera de Rosales and Daniela Diamente discovered the Route Verte, a 2,500-mile network of off-road trails and paths in the Canadian province of Quebec.

"Right away, we decided that if we ever had a child, the Route Verte would be the first bike tour we'd go on," Ignacio says. "I remember thinking, 'This is exactly the type of ride I'd want to take my kid on.'"

Soon, the active parents' dream of a family biking vacation became a reality, and all it took was a little planning. Take a few tips from their book before your family hits the road.
