Web Wanderlusting

July 25, 2014

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 to see so many adventure cyclists getting out there. Keep it up! Here are some of my favorites that I've stumbled upon recently.

Big Portions on Instagram

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.

Camp Often on Tumblr

These people really capture the essence of getting out there. The rules are simple: Camp often. Once a month. All year long.

Caitlin Hofmeister's Pack Your Panniers Pinterest Board

We asked you all to show us what you would take on your dream bike tour. Let me tell you; this lady knows what's up. I found myself clicking on almost all of her pins. And I forgot we sold these!

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.)

Do you know of other bicycle travel inspirations around the web that we should check out? Please let us know in the comments below! And remember that if you're traveling by bike and sharing photos or stories on any of our social media sites, share it with us by tagging #adventurecycling!

Nice article, I sit at the computer far more than I like as well. We must live vicariously through these adventurers!
