Smoke ‘n’ Fire400 – Bikepacking Endurance Testing
No surprise to our readers but bikepacking, and the bikepacking gear, gadgets and bikes to accommodate such activities, continues to grow in popularity.  As people who like to travel off the beaten path we really appreciate these innovations and continue to bring new items into our store, plus take advantage of them ourselves. Three years […]

“Diamond A Desert” by Bicycle
“drink muddy water, sleep in a hollow log” Three of us set out on the bicycles to find Arch Canyon in the Bruneau Jarbidge Rivers Wilderness. On day one we missed our turn and ended up at Dead Horse Spring. The next day we saw a dead horse, got disoriented and lost our way, traveled […]

Mt.Hood or Bust: Part 3
Saturday August 6th: Mitchell to Prineville and Prineville to Crooked River This was the day I had most been looking forward to. I had been dreaming about riding my bike to one of my favorite fishing spots for nearly the past 2 months. The day would not be without obstacles however. Long before I arrived […]

Mt.Hood or Bust: Part 2
Thursday August 4th: Prairie City to Dayville The ride to Dayville was easy enough, a “flat” road and very little wind allowed me to easily make the 44 miles in just under 4 hours. I had pretty big expectations for Dayville, The Bike Hermit had gone through these parts in April and loved it. By […]

Mt.Hood or Bust: Part 1
A year ago, I began planning a bike trip. I planned to ride from Great Falls Montana to Bozeman Montana, but plans don’t always go as expected, “you’ll have this” as The Bike Hermit would say. So instead, on August 3rd, I found myself, on my bike, riding across Oregon towards the unincorporated community of […]

Riding The Weiser River Trail
Early last year, a friend of mine (who happens to live in Weiser) mentioned the existence of the Weiser River Trail. I had never heard of it, so I went online to check it out. (Mash here for the main web site. There is also info at the National Recreation Trails site, and the Rails-to-Trails […]

From Three by Nine to Two by Ten on a Touring Bicycle
A Tale of Chain Suck By replacing my chain and the middle ring on my triple Sugino touring crankset I thought my problems would be solved. The chain would now drop smoothly from the middle ring to the small ring without hanging up on the bottom of the middle ring, getting dragged around and over […]

Adventure Cycling Association’s 40th Anniversary Weekend, 2016
Working backwards from July 15 I find that I can make a good case for leaving Boise on the 2nd and riding the bike for about two weeks, ending up in Missoula, MT for Adventure Cycling Association’s 40th Anniversary celebration. In the meantime I can ride with my wife and daughter on the Pioneer Mountains […]

The Pioneer Scenic Byway
Day 1 was not exactly what I had expected. I knew it wouldn’t be easy but this was down right miserable. The first 18 miles to Jackson MT were painful to say the least.  A head wind, of at least 75 miles per hour (no it was probably like 10-15 but still), and it was […]

Stuff Bike Touring Chicks Say
In honor of my first real bike trip with Sky King and The Bike Hermit, I give you stuff bike touring chicks say… Seriously, is this headwind for real? Is it always uphill? I hate bike touring. I should have trained more. That cheeseburger was a bad idea. Does that sign seriously say “chain up area”, sh*t. […]
