Pedal-Powered Family

2013 09 27

​What does it require to take your family from Hamilton Canada to Mexico and beyond? Strength, perseverance, resilience…and the right tool for the job! The Wike Premium Double was one of the tools the pedal-powered family relied on to get them over 13 000 km!

On May 11, 2011, the Pedal Powered Family started out from Hamilton, Ontario. The intrepid adventurers included Reuben and Heidi and their two young children, Eden (age 4 when they left) and Harper (almost 2 when they left). The family had an ambitious goal: Bike along the southern border of Canada, down the west coast to Panama City, and return up the east coast. Simple! While we could go on, the Pedal Powered Family kept everyone up to date. But they couldn’t have done it without their trusty Wike!

Since the Wike was an integral part of their journey, we’ve put a few highlights here:
