How to Throw a Kids Adventure Race Birthday Party

The excitement was palpable as the teams huddled up to make final preparations before the start. They had just been given their maps and race passports minutes before. In many ways it felt like all the other adventure races we put on, except this time the athletes were much younger, shorter and had a little less of an attention span. Jason counted down “5, 4, 3, 2, 1,  GOOOO” and they were off. Four teams of 4-5 year olds raced off on bikes while their parents ran behind them.

HOW TO PLAN A SUCCESSFUL FAMILY BIKEPACKING TRIP

Riding bikes with the kids

By Guest Bloggers Jason and Chelsey Magness

As professional adventure racers and race directors my husband Jason and I love big endurance training trips.  But as new parents of Max (4) and Revel (1.5) it has been a fascination to look for ways to incorporate more adventure, play and training into our family life. One of our most favorite ways to check all of these boxes is to go on family bike-packing trips. When we had just one kid, it was much easier to go on backpacking trips (one person carried the kid, the other the camping gear), but once we added little brother Revel to the mix, we quickly turned to looking for other alternatives that allowed for us to manage even more gear and weight. 

We just got back from our fourth bike packing trip through Central Oregon and it was amazing. We took 4 days (3 nights) to do 120 miles, most of it on dirt roads with lots of play stops along the way. Every night we ended at a different lake or river to ensure easy water access and lots of water, dirt and sand play (a kid’s dream).  On average, we rode hard for about 2-3 hours before our first stop and tried to do a second push in the early to late afternoon after the kids had worn themselves out. A few days into the trip, we hit a small town, which proved to be a fun stop for the kids and enabled us to carry less weight in food and water knowing that we could refill during the trip.
