Family Bike Trips

Family bike trips – ‘Overnights’ with Teen Treks are a way for families to “dip their toe” into the experience of bike touring. We have chosen bike-friendly routes, predominately on rail trails and canal paths through iconic areas throughout the Northeast.

These are non- competitive, social bike rides meant for the families to enjoy taking an adventure together and alongside other like-minded families. In the true spirit of bike touring, all trips will be filled with sightseeing stops including historic monuments, local treasures and often ice cream along the way!

Stay at scenic, family-friendly campgrounds, with plenty of opportunity for kids to play outdoors, and for all to share memories around a fire and over a camp-side meal.

All family bike trips will be supported, though individual families have the option for self-contained travel. A shuttle will be available at the trip start to load overnight gear. Participants are also welcome to carry their own gear either in bicycle panniers or a light backpack. Shuttle service will also be available in case of any bicycle maintenance issues along the trail. A bike guide and sweep will be present on all Overnight rides. 

We aim to partner with local bike clubs around New York to provide accessibility of gear and scholarship opportunities. Please reach out if you have any questions or are a community bike club who would like to bring an Overnight Family Bike Trip to your area!

Welcome to a Teen Treks’ Family Treks! Our family bike tours provide opportunity for quality time as an entire family while getting to travel with other like-minded adventurous families. 

Take a family vacation on a bike, with average week-long bike tours designed to offer fun and adventure for the families with kids age 10 and up. We have chosen bike-friendly routes, mostly along rail-trails, canals and bike paths that stop at scenic campgrounds and comfortable hotels each night. 

Each trip will be filled with side-adventures along the route. The best thing about traveling by bicycle is the immersive way it enables you to experience places you travel through. There’s no windows to roll down, you are already out in the open. Sights, sounds and smells often lead the group to spontaneous stops along the way. Planned stops will also break up the day’s ride, as we will visit museums, tour downtowns, stop at historic landmarks, and eat local cuisine along the way.

Each day, you will rest by a cozy fire and reflect on the unforgettable memories you and your family will cherish for years to come. We hope you will join us for a Family Bike Trek this summer!

This 5-day bike adventure offers an up-close experience to the Great Lakes and Niagara Falls. Cross from New York to Canada along the Peace Bridge, where you will join the Niagara Greenway Trail to the Rainbow Trail tracing Lake Ontario and Niagara River on the way to the iconic Falls.
