Fruita Mountain Bike Trip

Ever since our Canyonlands National Park White Rim Trail bikepacking adventure in 2019, we’ve longed for another bike trip to the desert. We finally returned in April 2022—this time to western Colorado. This trip was different. We didn’t sleep under the stars, carry all our water, or push fully-loaded bikes up steep hills. Instead, weContinue reading “Fruita Mountain Bike Trip”

My son’s appetiteContinue reading “Northern Maine Singletrack”

I explored the route with a group of friends in mid-May. With free, first-come-first-serve campsites in the White Mountain National Forest at the mid-wayContinue reading “Northern White Mountains Bikepacking Loop”
