Classic Car-Free Cascades: An out-and-back overnighter in Oregon’s Cascade Range

LeeAnn O'Neill and friends did this late spring overnight in Oregon’s Cascade Range. A fun-fueled adventure featuring a big climb, hot springs, and a campground.

Three Days in Death Valley

Ron Norton lives in California and made an early morning drive to Death Valley National Park for three beautiful days of riding and two nights in campgrounds.

Farms, Fields and Ferraris Three August days and two nights by bicycle on the rural east end of Long Island, New York.

Every year we take turns planning our great summer bike touring adventure. This year it was Ken's turn and he hatched a plan to ride on the east end of Long Island, New York for three days. During planning, Ken was surprised to find that most of the east end of Long Island is really quite rural, with farms, fields and yes, Ferraris.

Steel City Loop

The forecasters have predicted thunderstorms this afternoon, but as I mount my loaded bike I only see blue skies and white puffy clouds. I left for this overnight tour from the “south side” of Pittsburgh, a diverse area that attracts all kinds.  My plan is to circumnavigate the south hills of Pittsburgh utilizing a variety of rail-trails and only a minimal amount of trafficked pavement (about 10% of the 90 mile route).

Indianapolis to Cincinnati...and back

Brandon, Jim, and I hatched a plan for an epic weekend touring ride early in the summer over lunch at our favorite cajun restaurant. Bored with the typical racing and group ride culture that seems to permeate popular cycling, we wanted to plan rides that were adventures — fun, relaxing, yet still incredibly challenging. Cincinnati was a convenient 120 miles from Indy, so we decided to take a 3-day weekend and ride there and back.

Solo Epic — BikeCamping on the GoldFields

I’ve ridden a stack of 6-hr Vic.Enduro races, and ridden Mt.Buller a bunch of time, and have clocked up many, many laps of my home ground at Lysterfield, but I began to wonder what it would be like to load up, and ride+camp overnight. 

Peak to Peak Highway

 This was a quick two-night ride, north to south, on the Peak to Peak Highway, Estes Park to Evergreen. Ideally this would be ridden in late summer or early fall to take advantage of warm weather or changing colors.
