We are the Bicyclists

By Ben Weaver. Full transcript below. I come up in the bottoms Through the brambles, the streets, and the singletracks The river carries it’s shoulders out through the fields Everytime it rains the crows post on snagwood and swallow stones from the holes in an old lightning bolt’s shoe We’re the new great explorers who… Read more »


The Maiden Voyage : Bell Vintage Camper Adventure Rig

In the 60’s and 70’s, there was a boom in camper manufacturing and sales throughout the country. Many of these manufacturers didn’t survive the 80’s oil bust, yet remnants of the era can be found along country roads, abandoned in fields and junkyards. However, back in the heyday of the family road trip, the big… Read more »


Tulum, Mexico Adventure Brief

I finally got my Tulum trip report from our travels to Mexico back in February up on the site. We spent a handful of days in Tulum over President’s Week, and can’t wait to get back, as it was simply incredible. Check out more photos and the write-up on the Tulum adventure brief page.


1973 Bell Vintage Camper Adventure Rig Restoration

There’s only so much dodging tourists at the resort one can take, so instead… Read more »

Strawberry Narrows Forever

The fact that this trail exists and as of last Saturday I had never ridden it is a testament to the sheer abundance of world-class bike access we have in Utah. The Strawberry Narrows trail is worth every bit of the drive from Park City and features epic scenery complete with alpine lakes, golden aspen… Read more »


Zion Narrows : Adventure Preview

Since moving to Utah, Zion has become one of my favorite weekend destinations. There is a silly amount of wonder packed into that place, and being just a quick 4 1/2 hour trip down the interstate, it’s a shame I don’t get down there more than I do. The Virgin River Narrows hike has been… Read more »
