As we close out another memorably challenging year, we want to take a moment to wish all of you happy holidays and thank you for being a part of our community in 2021…

Without a doubt, 2021 was another difficult year for everyone, but the small team here at is incredibly grateful to you, our community of readers, for still making it a special one by sharing your stories, submitting your routes, sending your favorite posts to friends, and engaging in (sometimes lively) conversations in the comments. We’re wishing you happy holidays—however you celebrate them—and we hope you’ll consider wrapping up the year by taking part in our annual Good Night local overnighter challenge between the 25th and 31st, during which we invite you to reenergize and dream about what’s to come in 2022. If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up to share your campout for a chance to win!

Good Night 2021

Good Night 2021

Good Night 2021 is a local overnighter challenge between December 25th and 31st that invites everyone to sleep under the stars, have a good night outdoors, and blissfully send off the year. Learn more about the event and how to win one of six great prizes here, including a Big Agnes Bikepack Tent, handlebar bags from Rockgeist, and Ultradynamico Mars 2.2″ tires. Details here.

We’ll be back on Monday with another full week of posts to close out the year, including a couple of last Editor’s Dozen posts, a new Gear Index, a look back at 2021, and more.
