Mini cycling holiday

Mini cycling holiday

It is about a month ago since we had our last small cycling holiday.
On 14-15 october 2017 we had a very warm weekend in the Netherlands.

So we planned our small cycling trip. My son (9 years) would like to stay on a campsite with swimming pool.
After some searches we found “Ardoer Camping Ackersate” to stay.

We planned our trip and try to get some quite roads and even some unpaved ones as well.
Due to the weather we had a great weekend and some nice cycling routes.
After a night sleep in the tent we did drove back to home.

The trip can be viewed below on the map.

And off course we had our camera with us to get some footage.

It is nice to have this weekend nearby our home.

A couple of weeks ago there was a intresting article on the dutch news page, RTL news .  The did quote a Belgium article saying it is better to start biking without training wheels.

If children start using a balance bike they will easily start riding a bike without training wheels.

We used a wishbone bike to learn our son biking. First we did use it as a trike later on we changed it to a balance bike.  It was a bit wobly the first weeks but after that he did go faster every day.

Finn did biked on a 12 inch mini bike without using training wheels.
