我骑自行车去露营10天 - 一个婴幼儿！这是我们用于在俄勒冈州内陆小道史诗般的家庭冒险的bikepacking齿轮。
Overall, we were able to keep our calm even when we came up against locked gates, roads that turned into nothing, and hills too steep to pull the trailer up. Thanks to our冒险比赛心态我们遇到的每一个障碍正面，辗转了几个深呼吸（也许我们的呼吸几下脏话），想出了另一种方式。
Whether bikepacking solo or heading out with the entire family, here are five tips to get you pedaling.
寻找完美的拖车是我们能够从容地拖了很长的距离关键。对于我们的许多较小的旅行，我们把我们的Thule Chariot.But for long hauls and bumpy roads, its width becomes an issue.
之后做一些研究，我们发现Weehoo iGo Two- 单轮拖车带两个席位。这是超级容易修改，我们可以删除一个座位，并附上9个月大狂欢的汽车座椅。
After a few tests we turned the car seat around so that the boys faced each other, and all of our lives instantly got better. Most of the time, there was nothing but giggles coming from behind us as the boys babbled back and forth.
Food is a huge factor in making any backcountry missions successful, happy, and healthy. Through adventure racing, Jason and I knew it was important our food be both light in weight and dense in calories.
This time, we had the added challenge of feeding our kids too. Max is a prolific snacker but picky at dinner and breakfast. And Revel eats more than all of us (seriously) but can’t yet have salt and is breastfeeding for only a small portion of his needs.
Luckily, we were able to snag some great meals from Adventure Eats, a local Bend startup. They even worked with us to create some no-sodium dehydrated baby food. Five days’ worth of organic baby food weighed in at less than a pound. And best of all, it was so good that Max would eat the leftovers!
杰森收拾帐篷，而我喂孩子，然后我们就轮流让自行车整装待发，而我们中的一个打了孩子。谁不拖着兽拖车是对孩子的责任 - 讲故事，因为我们乘坐提供小吃，并保持防晒应用。
平均而言，我们可以去约2小时，他们会要求停止之前。我们中断持续了一个小时 - 充满美味的食物，并在玩泥巴，这样当它是一次坐回自行车，他们累了，准备好了。
We then would ride for another 2 hours, break again, and then continue as long as needed to get to our final camp.
We mitigated this for Max by creating a continuing storyline about his adventure friend “Zelda” that had left him a small toy and clue at each new camp. This was a lifesaver for us.
Once at camp, one of us would sneak away and hide a new little mini car. The other one would then get out the map, read the clues to Max, and take him on a little hunt to find his new toy. This activity, along with his new toy, would occupy him for the rest of the night, which gave us some time to set up camp, make dinner, and just be happily tired.
Before we left, we put together a crew of folks willing to pick us up in case we needed it. We planned to go for as long as we could and wanted to complete the full loop back home. But we also wanted to make it fun and successful for everyone involved.
Nine days into our trip, we rode into a small town 80 miles from home. The temps were 90 degrees and rising, with no water supply or shade from that point on. Furthermore, a fellow bikepacker informed us that we had “25 miles of the worst sandy gravel riding on the whole route” coming up.
From bikes to camp lights, this is the gear that kept us going day after day.
Niner RLT 9 RDO：$ 6,600
I reached for my carbon Niner RLT 9 RDO gravel bike for this mission because the first half of the trip was full of unknown roads. Niner calls the RLT 9 RDO its “multitool bike” for its ability to tackle anything from rough gravel to dirt trails to smooth asphalt. And I couldn’t agree more.
The extremely light and stiff carbon frame coupled with the thoughtful tube construction made for a comfortable ride, even after 40 miles of towing the kids on rough, bumpy roads.
更重要的是，它可以采取一系列不同尺寸的轮胎，从瘦骨嶙峋650 X 28C轮胎2.0。26个坐骑使这个自行车一个惊人的齿轮搬运工为好。
Ritte Satyr Gravel Bike：$ 4,999
While not designed specifically for bikepacking, the bike was a perfect mix of rugged and svelte. And somehow it performed equally well loaded down with an extra 150 pounds (gear and trailer) as when it was unencumbered.
It’s specced with the new and capable Shimano 1x GRX drivetrain and ENVE carbon fork, which made for a beautiful ride on both smooth and rough roads. The Satyr outshined the Niner on the 3-mile “highway to hell” section — an ancient paved road with consistent deep 3-inch cracks every 10 feet.
The racks are lightweight but super burly, with a limit of 70 pounds. We did a fun test with fully loaded racks (140 pounds total) and trailer with kids (85 pounds), for a total of 225 pounds added to the standard bike weight. It felt about as nimble as a tank but was actually very rideable.
As adventure racers, we’re used to carrying a backpack for multiple days on end. But making everything we needed fit on our bike frame was amazing and freeing.
Apidura and Revelate Designs are among2020年最佳bikepacking袋而且我们两个的耐用性和多功能性的首选。这两个品牌举起不间断滥用，仍然9天的好看如新。
Because my frame is size XS and I needed to pull the trailer, my range of bags to pick from was scarce. And because Jason needed to be able to fit two racks and pull the trailer, his choices were also slim. But we were able to come up with the perfect combo to fit everything we needed.
Voile Ski Straps：$ 6-10
Weehoo iGo Two: $489
The construction is on the cheaper end. The seat back pockets and panniers are cheap-o quality and not suitable for heavy loads. But the actual trailer feels super solid, and the adjustability is really simple.
We heavily modified our trailer to suit our needs. We removed the pedals and one of the seats to mount a car seat instead. Things like shade/weather cover and kickstand are sold separately. They’re poor quality for what you pay but probably worth it for a long trip regardless.
If there were other options for a trailer like this out there, I’d be harsher on this one for its many shortcomings. But as it stands, there are none. And theiGo Twowas perhaps the key piece of gear in making this sort of family bike trip possible and enjoyable.
BioLite SunLight: $25
In the evening, the kids loved to play with its “party mode” feature and watch the lights change color. Jason and I loved it for its soft light to read or do the魔方在帐篷里，而孩子们睡觉。
It was also super simple to recharge. We would just clip it on top of our rack or front bag, and it would be solar charged by the time we arrived at camp.
轻巧，耐用，Stash Matwas another critical piece of gear for us. Because we often would break and camp in the middle of the forest, we didn’t have any picnic tables to eat on. This mat was the first thing to come out whenever we stopped.
它成为the kids’ eating mat, play mat, and was crucial for bedtime. It provided a blackout environment for 9-month-old Revel as he went to bed when it was still light out.
And the huge floor space (nearly 38 square feet) was enough room for the four of us. Setup was a breeze, and it’s super easy to pair with the永篷布($190) for rain coverage.
In Central Oregon, water can be hard to come by. And because campgrounds were closed due to COVID-19, we had to be a little more self-reliant. With the BeFree 3L filter, this was not an issue.
Within minutes of filling our filter from the river, we could easily fill all our bottles and bladders. Toward the end of our trip, the filter did get a little clogged. But after a few shakes and jostles, it went back to flowing freely again.
Compared to other filters that are on the heavier or bulkier side, this one could roll up so small it easily fit in my frame bag for quick access.

Just Go For It
Things didn’t go perfectly, but it’s worth getting out and going for it. If you’re looking for ways to get the family outside, start small. Go on an overnight camping trip nearby or hop on the bike for a few hours.
Look for ways to make it fun for the whole family and remember that bad moods and meltdowns will pass.
