Welcome! My name is Sarah Hunter. I’m the communications director for Pine Island Camp, a trip leader for the Appalachian Mountain Club, and a freelance writer and editor. I live in Maine with my husband and our two sons, and together we have trekked and pedaled thousands of miles—from day hikes and backpacking trips in the high peaks of New England to week-long, self-supported bike tours in the US and Canada. 

Freelance Writing and Editing Work

Traveling along trails that meander through forests, up mountains, and across communities has enriched my life, and I enjoy writing stories that inspire readers to explore and protect these great resources.

My work has appeared in the print and online publications of a variety of organizations, including Adventure Cycling Association, Appalachian Mountain Club, Eastern Mountain Sports, and others. Most of my published writing can be found here.

Our first week-long bike trip paved the way to adventures we never imagined possible.

Planning a Family Bike Trip

When we set off on our first bike trip we had limited bike mechanic skills and only a vague sense of the physical and emotional challenges we would face. But we figured it out together. Here are a few things we’ve learned about planning a family bike trip.
