Summer in Missoula is amazing. Summer behind a computer screen, working for Adventure Cycling, is sometimes torturous. Witnessing bicycle adventures through the computer screen is painful in the most inspiring way.
Even though I'm filled with FOMO (fear of missing out), my heart is filled when I log on to Instagram, Tumblr, and Pinterest to see so many adventure cyclists getting out there. Keep it up! Here are some of my favorites that I've stumbled upon recently.
Sam Harney is riding the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route with his friend Kurt Williams (who also has a rad Instagram account). These guys are not only adventuring by bike, they're also traveling with rock climbing gear that is taking them on some wild rides.
These people really capture the essence of getting out there. The rules are simple: Camp often. Once a month. All year long.
You have six more days to get your Pinterest board up and running for the chance to win a set of Arkel panniers! (Check out this post for more info.)
