    Mike Curiak is beyond peer, in my opinion. Others may do amazing trips once in a while, but he churns them out with such regularity, I can't imagine anyone catching up to him.
    Bicycles rule.

    Default Love it!

    I have been doing these kind of rides for years, and just recently discovered it is a designated adventure travel! Ha! I am building a rig now for overland expeditions down Baja, and I usually take my bike with me and find a day or two to ride off somewhere just for the ride. I would love to meet others whit the same interest. If you are ever looking to ride the Southwest, please PM me and share your plans. Never know, maybe I can ride a leg with you!

    Don't forget the adventure aspect of adventure riding!!! I like to explore unknown areas on the fatbike, discover abandoned settlements/buildings, look for epic camping spots to hang the hammock up and relax, find new trout fishing areas, link up favourite riding spots, see where roads/creeks/rivers/valleys go. Get out to practice some bushcraft... It's more than just a bike and some gear, it's an adventure! A long day, an overnighter, a few days, a year around the globe, it's all good!
