Being an active mother with two small children I have had to adapt my life to get my regular dose of exercise whilst spending quality time with my children. After allot of researching and product testing we have gathered all the right gear for AWOL Tours to allow adventurous travelling families with children of all ages to safely join in the family cycling tours in Cape Town.
For babies age 6 months to 4 years we have Baby seats that can carry weight from 9kg up to 20kg. It is suitable for babies that are able to sit unaided and are safely secured with straps similar to car seats. The rider can still communicate with child and point out interesting sights along the way.
For toddlers to young kids age 2 – 6 years we have “Carrymac” child seats that mount on the top bar of bicycle frame and footrests on bottom bar so children sit up holding onto the handlebar. Children love the thrill of being part of the ride, balancing and steering the bicycle whilst still having the sense of security between the parents arms.
For 6-12 years we have bicycle tow bars that converts an ordinary child’s bike into a safe, towable trailer bike, whenever desired. When the child’s bike is connected, the front wheel is lifted off the ground and a stabilizing bar prevents the handlebars from turning, leaving the adult in control of steering. Children can choose to coast or pedal while they are being towed, making the ride much easier for them. This system allows for the child to decide when they wish to ride on their own away from the traffic.
For teenagers 12 – 16 years we have various extra small bicycles that allows them to participate on an easy mountain bike ride in Koeberg Nature Reserve, cycle around Cape Town or a Bicycle Township Tour.
We look forward to hearing from you more information about doing a cycling tour with you family in Cape Town. Our tours are suitable for families of all ages and all fitness. With AWOL Tours we ensure that nobody gets left behind !
