We truly believe being a cyclist does not mean being 'hardcore'. It can mean you ride your bike around your neighborhood, or across hundreds of miles of gravel. And by talking about all the ways we bike as cyclists, we hope to inspire you to see that riding a bike is not a lifestyle, it can be part of your life. We encourage you to try gravel biking!
A productive conversation for the rest of us out there who enjoy camping, and biking, should be about Campbiking. At äventyr we completely agree with this quote from Seth Godin: “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don't need to escape from.” In fact we say something similar: “Life is not a vacation, but we sure try to make everyday feel as much like one as we can.” We cycle in our daily life, and are now cycling on vacation.
One of our goals with äventyr is to share our experiences not as personal aggrandizement, but to hopefully inspire, educate, and remove barriers. Having just returned from an off-the-grid äventyr to the Black Hills National Forest in Wyoming and South Dakota, we wanted to do just that. So we will be sharing a few posts from our travels.
