Getting out of the house for a cycling adventure can seem overwhelmingly difficult--even for experienced riders--despite being logistically easy. We're holding an Adventure Lab in the hopes of motivating you and ourselves to get out on our bikes more often. Since it's cold and dark outside, we want to drink some beer and get pumped about riding later in the year. If you have questions about where to go or how to pack your gear, this event is for you.
We'll have a few presentations by seasoned veterans; they'll share some trips they've taken in the past and the strategies that work best for them. Afterwards, the presenters will have information tables and be available to answer questions and pour over maps with you.
We'll also be talking about an overnight route that we'll be riding together later in the spring. If you're just wrapping your head around the idea of overnight bicycle adventures, then there will be other more seasoned folks to help you enjoy your experience. If you're a seasoned pro, then you already know how much fun this is going to be.
There's a lot of fancy bikepacking gear on the market these days, but if you don't own it and can't afford it, don't worry. You probably already own everything you need to get by. Do you have a bike and a backpack? Great! Join us.
Here's what you should bring to the Adventure Lab:
-A notepad (or whatever you want to use to record good ideas or routes you want to ride).
-A chair (we don't have many).
-Beer (if you want beer).
