Driftless Region, Minnesota, USA

Weekend Snapshot

By Nicolette Reker (@Nikity_Nak)

Our first extended bikepacking trip took us in and out of the Driftless Region’s valleys that we are lucky enough to call home. The challenging yet simplistic life on a bicycle for a few days has left us invigorated and ready for the next excursion.

Torridon, Scotland

Weekend Snapshot

By Mike DeBernardo (@mike_deber)

After about an hour of pathless, boggy hike-a-biking, the sight of Morrison’s Gully on the North side of Sàil Mhòr meant that I would soon return to the theme of my three-day trip: technical singletrack riding (otherwise known as hiking).

White Mountains National Recreation Area, Alaska

Weekend Snapshot

By Corrine Leistikow

My husband and I did one last fat bike ride on snow to Richard’s Cabin in the White Mountains north of Fairbanks, Alaska. We had to get on the trail early (by 6 AM) to get to our destination before the snow got too soft for riding.
