My Illinois Bike Overnight: How to Carry Too Much Stuff

I wanna do this! I’ve camped a lot before, but never on a bike. So here’s my first go at it!

A Nevada Bike Overnight: That Little Meadow Above Reno Off Hunter Lake Road

This outing was your textbook overnight bike adventure. We packed our bikes, dogs, dinner, and camping gear and rode an hour into the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. We camped in a meadow overlooking Reno.

A New Year's Bike Overnight

We turned our annual New Year's Day ride into an overnighter. Belleplain State Forest to Cape May, NJ to East Point Light House, and back to BellePlain. 80 miles and a great start to 2016.

A Primer on Camping Stoves

What makes a good stove for bicycle touring? First, the stove has to be small and light. I've seen some stoves that weigh a ton. For the most part, they work great, but mostly disqualify themselves because of the weight. Next, fuel has to be available. If a stove runs on canisters that you can find only in certain large cities, that's not going to do you much good. The most readily available fossil fuel, automotive gas, isn't very good for your health or for your stove, so try to stay away from that as an option.
