Couple Crosses the Alps by Bicycle with 4-year-old Child

It is not the first time that Fabio Nitschke Gomes and his wife Melissa take their children for adventure: at age two, the twins Theo and Martim climbed Pedra do Bauzinho in Campos do Jordão and the three descended the Serra do Mar in São Paulo, By bike in a bike trailer. Now, at age four, the family will spend two weeks in Europe – but it will not be any trip.

“We enjoy doing activities together, with outdoor experiences and always looking to involve our children. Now let’s do something bolder with them,” says Fabio.

From  June 14 to 18  the family will make a TransAlp-a bicycle expedition that crosses the Alps, leaving Germany, passing through Austria and arriving in northern Italy. Driving along much of Via Claudia Augusta, one of the ancient roads of the Roman Empire, will be almost 500 km in 5 days.

A German couple will accompany them by bicycle, while three other people will go by car.The boys will participate in various sections in a Bike Trailer Thule Coaster-the same equipment that the family uses in city tours on weekends. Ideal solution for longer journeys, the bike trailer guarantees the comfort of both children and cyclists. In addition to protection against sun, wind, cold and rain, it is extremely stable and safe, very light for towing and still has ample space for additional cargo.”We already have a good experience with the Thule Coaster, and we are sure that it will work very well on our cycling,” says Fabio.

The bikes will be equipped with  Thule Pack and Pedal products. They are baggage carriers, saddle bags, handbags and accessories that, with intelligent solutions, a lot of flexibility and practicality, carry the luggage in an organized, comfortable and safe way-from photographic equipment to the raincoat.

To enable such complex logistics, the expedition will also use  Thule bicycle stands  and suitcases and travel bags, ensuring a tranquil and confident journey to this super active family.
