Practicing Traveling as A Family

Tuesday are "outing" night, when we go somewhere outside of the house. We decided last night's outing was walking on a paved bike trail that is near our home.

image.png

We're just starting out, so we are starting with a short walk. We went about 2 miles to our destination and about 2 miles back to our home. Four miles in total doesn't seem like much, but for a family of eight (two strollers, one scooter, two bikes and a hot wheels) it's a bit of a challenge. Our goal next week is perhaps five miles, if we can manage it.

The idea is to continue increasing the distance each time to increase our strength and stamina, also to alert us to potential problems.

Statistics

If we had to go somewhere without a motor vehicle, this is about how far we can manage easily - four miles. We traveled our first 2 miles in 30 minutes, meaning we averaged about 4 MPH. The overall trip was 2.5 hours, so with all of our stops we averaged 1.6 MPH.

If we can increase our distance and our speed, we will be doing well! But I think this is an excellent start.

That is a cool challenge, Benjamin. It is really intensified by herding the entire gang.

Great to see you and your family alive and well Benjamin, and fantastic to see you all go on a bike ride, from the numbers it seems you are thinking about training them to beat the record, enjoy your day and stay safe, awesome and alive.

Wow nice family walk, 2 miles is a great one to start with @ironshield I'm sure with time, you and your family will be able to walk extra miles away from home and it's not easy taking the children alongside with you guys.

But always remember to stay safe and healthy with your family.

This is really nice. Activities like these galvanize a family indeed and considering thee distance covered too, am sure it was not really an easy one for a family of eight. There'll always be stops here and there, but the ability to continue and clock four miles is really great. Keep exercising, stay safe too.

No, it was a challenge, but worth every moment. Also the weather was perfect, that helped! With more practice, it will become easier. Thanks for your comment!

You all seems to have a great time together, that's the beauty of family, and I admire yours for always creating time and avenue for continuous bonding, I believe with time the distance will increase as everyone get use to the routine.

Have a blessed day, and say bless.

For our family, bonding is a 100% of the time experience, but special events are still special for sure. Glad you're enjoying some quality time walking with your kids and husband, it does bring great happiness!

HAH! Just getting everyone ready and out the door is an undertaking with my family. Let alone actually going somewhere on foot or by bicycle...
So 4 miles sounds pretty good to me!
And aside from that, it's about being outdoors and being together as a family. Not about the distance. :)

you get it exactly!

I agree, it's mostly about the time together. The distance is just motivation to get in the habit of doing it again... and again... and again!

My parents were always very busy because they were running a hospitality business half of my youth. But I still remember the time we spent together, at the pool, or in the park for a walk, etc. very fondly. Those are the memories that stick!
Then hot cocoa after a walk outside in winter, and a story read by my mother.
They're the best memories!

1.6 MPH for starters sounds good especially with a whole family. No bike lanes here in Ghana so you will have to compete with motor vehicles for space, doesn't sound too safe here for kids but love that you are trying this out. A great way for family bonding.

I couldn't imagine shuffling six children down a road used by motor vehicles! Have to get creative!

@ironshield, thanks for sharing your day.
Yes, it always difficult to go longer distance with kids.
But you did manage 4 miles. I am sure over time it will get better, i think :-)
Also, you and your family had a good time, that's what matters more.

Take care and stay safe

I thought four miles sounded pretty short, but I suppose for a first time it's not too bad. Next goal is six miles.
