For approximately the past 10 years the FLCC has offered a weekend of bike touring especially for young families and kids, called the Young People's Bike Tour. We typically had 30 to 135 participants on these tours, which required about a dozen volunteers and a lead organizer, to carry out successfully and safely. In fact, the Young People's Bike Tour was so successful that it served as the model and inspiration for Bike Travel Weekend, an annual event organized by the nationwide non-profit cycling organization the Adventure Cycling Association, which had over 9,000 participants in 2018. The original organizers of FLCC's Young People's Bike Tour have moved on to other endeavors. Therefore, for 2019, and until a new organizer steps up, the FLCC recommends that families from our area join up with groups in other locations that are organizing events for the first weekend in June, and are listed on the BikeTravelWeekend.org
website. For example, one such trip, the Cape Cod Bike Travel Weekend
looks like it will be a great trip, very much in the spirit of the Young People's Bike Tour.
