If you’ve never wanted to grab your kid, some mountain bikes, and a GoPro, you will now. Check out the video after the jump – it’s of a father-son ride through a bike trail. The son, five year old Malcolm, has a GoPro strapped to his helmet and provides a running commentary during the ride.

How does one begin to sum up and describe one of the biggest undertakings they’ve had? I was hoping to be able to write with beautiful prose, spinning tales of wonderfulness, but that just isn’t going to happen this time. We have ridden over 300 miles from Long Beach, California to Yuma, Arizona. We have faced California’s Santa Ana winds the whole week. We’ve dumped over 20 pounds of excess weight. The Chariot has had two flat tires and we’ve gotten lost twice.
This bicycle tour is the toughest thing I have done as a father.

On March 1st, my wife, two of our children and myself will be biking across the country. We will pack our bikes, get on an airplane courtesy of Alaskan Airlines here in Seattle, and fly to Long Beach California. My wife will be carrying supplies and I will be pulling the kids in a trailer made by Chariot, along with some gear and musical instruments. The Chariot has 5 point harnesses for the two kids, a roll cage, and leaf springs for suspension (No shaken babies in this family).
Our route will first bring us to Yuma, AZ then Phoenix, White Sands National Monument and on up to Omaha to see my wife’s brother. We then swing a little more north to see more family in Iowa. After Iowa, we head east and north up to Niagara Falls. I brought my oldest son to Niagara Falls when I was moving home after the military, so it will be nice to bring the youngest children there as well. The last leg of our tour will be for us to shoot east to Syracuse, through southern Vermont and New Hampshire to our destination; Bar Harbor, Maine.
We are going to ride two bicycles across the country to raise awareness and funds for Charity: Water, which is, in our personal opinions, an awesome charity.
