Biking is one of our favorite things to do as a family while camping. What started out as just riding Strider bikes around the campground when the kids were toddlers has turned into specifically planning certain trips based on trail proximity so that we can enjoy some epic singletrack together. This post covers how we transport all the bikes, find nearby trails for riding, motivate the kids to ride further, and some favorite biking gear for the kids.

I’ll never forget our first camping trip with the kids. My wife and I were quite comfortable in our usual outdoor gear, including fleece layers, water resistant pants, wool socks with hiking boots, and a raincoat. And while our kids were probably better dressed for the conditions than most their age (18 months and 3 years old), they did still get cold and wet due to their limited wardrobe. We’ve since learned what camping clothing works best for kids at a reasonable price and have shared those recommendations below, including a few creative ways to use the clothes beyond camping.
