ABOUT THE PROJECT
WORLD BICYCLE RELIEF
Our goal is the raise $15,000 for World Bicycle Relief. That equates to 100 bikes for students in Africa. All donations go directly to World Bicycle Relief.
KIDS ON BIKES
We’re working to inspire kids and families to get outdoors on bikes so that they might live healthy lives, connect with the natural world, and live sustainably.
We’ll be sharing our adventures through multiple outlets including our blog, social media, video, and articles so that you can follow along with us.
Find us at mountain bike events, races, youth rides, and trail work days as we travel across the U.S. and Canada.
Our mission is to get kids (and their families) on bikes. At home, there are so many reasons why this is important. Biking creates a vital connection with nature, reduces obesity, provides exercise, builds community, increases confidence, reduces air pollution, and on and on. When it comes to children in less privileged parts of the world, a bike provides all of those things and so much more. It means that they can get to school, and they can do so without living in fear. It means that their family can get to a doctor. Our goal is the raise $15,000 for World Bicycle Relief. That equates to 100 bikes for students in Africa. All donations go directly to World Bicycle Relief, and can be made on our fundraising page at http://fundraise.worldbicyclerelief.org/rascalsontheroad. We’ve seen it with our own eyes, have experienced it in our own lives, and know this is true: bicycles have the power to change the world.

On Day 3 of our Memorial Day trip, I opened the cooler half expecting, as I’ve become accustomed to over three decades of camping, to find our food floating in a warm-water swamp. Instead, there was our raw hamburger – still cold. Our bag of ice – still frozen. Much to my surprise, it turns Read more about Yeti Tundra Cooler Review: The Ultimate Expedition Ice Chest[…]
Here we are with two months (well, two and a half) until we leave for our year long trip. Yes, we’re really still doing it! With so little time left, and a very long to-do list we have been spending all our spare time preparing. Here’s what we’ve managed to do so far: Bought our Read more about May 2017 Update: Two Months to Go![…]
We recently visited Usery Mountain Regional Park during our Spring Break trip to Arizona. Part of the impressive McDowell Mountain Parks system, Usery Mountain Regional Park offers a myriad of outdoor activities to include hiking, mountain biking, camping, and more. The nature center even offers yoga classes and wildlife talks. Only a few minutes from Read more about Visiting Usery Mountain Regional Park – Mesa, AZ[…]
As I loaded my skis on the rack for the fifth consecutive Sunday, I knew we needed to escape. Somewhere warm. Somewhere sunny. Somewhere with dry singletrack. I don’t mind skiing, but unlike many other Utahns, it’s not my first love. Mountain biking is. We lived in Arizona for nearly a decade before moving north Read more about WATCH: Spring Break in Arizona – Family Mountain Bike Trip[…]
I can bear the cold and snow and keep a good attitude for a while, but every year around mid-January the desert starts calling my name. A few Fridays ago, the kiddo started throwing up and the air outside was gray, and I was done. An email to the hubs and a hotel reservation later, Read more about Family Destination: Hiking the Green Valley Gap, St. George, UT[…]
Park City is known for celebrity watching, indie films, and glitzy living. What many people don’t know is that this mountain town in Utah is also the perfect destination for active families with children. We are lucky enough to live about 20 minutes from Old Town Park City, and we make full-use of the proximity. Read more about 9 Endorphin-Packed Family Adventures in Park City, UT[…]
About 2 miles into our 4.5 miles journey, we knew we were in trouble. It was raining (rather than snowing), and raining pretty heavily at that. The snow was getting softer and softer and our pace was getting slower and slower. We debated turning around and then decided to keep going. The Millcreek Yurt is Read more about Family Adventures at the Millcreek Canyon Yurt[…]
Before the snow hit, we decided to get in one last family mountain biking adventure at Antelope Island State Park. Antelope Island is a truly magical place, located in the Great Salt Lake (which isn’t actually a lake but a sea)! The island is named for the herds of antelope that you are sure to Read more about Family Adventures on Antelope Island[…]
As one of our first big steps in preparing for our big trip, we recently bought a truck. We knew we couldn’t afford a brand new $50k dollar pickup, so we were on the search for a good used one. After some research and searching, we ended up buying a Chevrolet Silverado 1500. This was Read more about Family Adventures on The White Rim Trail[…]
Well, there’s nothing quite like setting up a website to put something out there in the world. This is real, and there is no turning back now… Starting summer of 2017 (August 1st most likely), our little family will be leaving our home in Salt Lake City behind and hitting the road for a year Read more about Announcing our Plans[…]
