This edition of Weekend Snapshot whisks us away to the mountains of Ecuador and two regions of the United States. Check in with a handful of readers who recently got outside to spin the pedals and use the form to share a photo from one of your rides here…

Good morning, and welcome to another edition of Weekend Snapshot, our recurring Monday series that’s been helping us kick off each week for nearly two years. In today’s installment, we join three folks from our global bikepacking community and follow them on quick getaways around Michigan, Ecuador, and Georgia. Take a peek at all three vignettes below, then use the short form to share a shot of your own.
