From Skyscrapers to Farms

Twenty-one years after finishing my first cross-county bicycle tour at Yankee Stadium, I ride north on the Hudson River Valley Greenway along Manhattan’s west side. I share the trail with joggers and bike commuters sometimes going faster than the rush hour motor traffic on the parallel Henry Hudson Parkway. It’s a crisp 42-degree early November morning, about the time of year I seem to do bike overnights, past peak bike touring season. Yet I’m warmed by the sun in a cloudless sky.

Belmont to Butano to Big Basin and Back

I set out on a weekend with my brother to do a little Bay Area bike camping. The route we took was Belmont to San Gregorio via Old La Honda Road. In San Gregorio the general store provides live music on the weekend, so we swung in before riding over to Pescadero via Stage Road.

 

 

Harpers Ferry to D.C. and Back Again

So, I’ve been sent by my employer to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, for a three-week course.  What should I do over the weekends while at school? Hhhmmm, let’s see, I could ship my bike and finally get to do some of the rides I’ve read about in Adventure Cycling magazine and at BikeOvernights.org. That’s it! But Since I live in Arizona, the first thing I have to figure out is how to get my bike there.

A Spring Single-Speed Overnight

This year, I decided to make my first yearly trek out to the Sterling Forest, for my traditional first campout of the spring, happen by bike rather than motorized vehicle. I have a single speed mountain bike race coming up in two weeks, so the more hours I can spend on the bike the better. I would ride my single speed from Hackensack to my secret spot in the woods in Sloatsburg, New York.
