In August, we biked 9.8 miles to Great Camp Santanoni in New York’s Adirondack Park, and it was a really fun experience. It’s the most unique historic site I’ve ever been to because it’s been left in pretty much the same condition that it was in when it was sold to New York State, besides […]
A 10,000 MILE BIKE RIDE – FOLLOWING THE MONARCH MIGRATION.
On my old steel mountain bike, dinged with the scars of past adventures, I loaded up all my gear and set off from the forests of central Mexico.
