Historic Ride for the Gold in Arizona

We wanted a trip that provided great vistas and a taste of local Arizona history. This ride on scenic Highway 83 and overnight camp at Kentucky Camp delivers on both of those goals. We started our ride in Tucson at one of our favorite breakfast stops, Joe’s Pancake House.

Baked Beans Bend, New Zealand

Wednesday morning, 8:30. As usual I arrive at work on my bike. Unusually though, my bike is loaded up with luggage. At the end of the working day I'll leave on my bike. But today I won't be going home to my family. The luggage on my bike is my overnight camping gear. Tonight I will be staying at Baked Beans Bend in Wellington's Belmont Regional Park. I wouldn't call it a campsite.

A Teen and Her Mum Pedal to Pigeon Lake, Alberta

My first overnight bike trip was not what I expected, although I'm not sure what I had imagined in the first place. The idea began when I told my mum about some dreams of someday spending a whole week living off my bike. After hearing that she was definitely excited, and she suggested we try an overnight trip before thinking about something longer. With that it began.
