Summer has arrived: family tandem ride

We’ve done a great sunny full-day ride on our tandem with a kidback plus two other bikes. The target was Vanhankaupungin koski (stream and a waterfall), one of the city attractions we had not visited before.

This made 56 km and 10 hours door-to-door. I think it was the first day of the year when it was possible to cycle in shorts – not morning and evening though.

The waterfall was the main attraction point for children, but not the only one. On the way forward we visited Villa Elfvik, the “nature house” with a very touchy, informal exposition, and on the way back cycled through the very center of Helsinki. Kids were reasonably tired, but not at all dead at the end; a well-known principle is that they usually exhaust morally much earlier than physically, and if there is enough suitable entertainment on the way, they can keep quite long.
