It’s #NewBikeDay finally! The bike industry has been wild this year with all the virus issues. I have to thank Bob @squeakywheelbikes and Jon @trailtunedsuspension for their generosity and help in making this bike happen. Plus @brian_peterson_873 for his advice on bikes n beer during the process. The nice people @qualitybike and their online education program helped too. It’s time for adventures in the dirt. #getdirty #bikepacking #surlyecr #outsideisthebestside #viewsnotpews #29plus #fattires #seenwhilecycling
Mt. McDill, Palmdale, California
I’ll be riding west from Palmdale on the June 22nd Swift Campout (Summer Solstice) around 3:00pm to the Sawmill Campground in Lake Hughes, CA. The route will follow the California Aqueduct to Johnson Road and then west to the Lake Hughes area. Ride time is about 3 hours and 30 miles. The start will be Ave P-12 and 25th St West in Palmdale. Load up your bike for some camping fun. There will be a supply stop in Lake Hughes for extra water and food. I am not your mom so I won’t be providing comfort or cover. Be prepared. Let’s ride!!! Email email@example.com if you would like to join me for the bikepacking shenanigans. There will be climbing on dirt once the pavement ends to get to the campground.
