Elton recently quit his job after working 11 years in the cooperate world to pedal his Surly Ogre to Nicaragua and take over his family’s coffee farm. He’s now over 600 miles into his trip. Follow Elton’s journey on his YouTube channel here.

Sandwiched between the misty beaches of the Pacific and the urban sprawl of the San Francisco Bay, the SF Peninsula Traverse is an easy-to-reach and easy-to-bail, weekend-warrior-compatible bikepacking route. The route is designed to take riders you deep into the forest and high up on the ridgelines to take in the expansive ocean and bay views. Find the full route guide here.
