Here is my bike leaning against the ruins of Theodore Roosevelt’s Cabin just outsideContinue reading “Bikepacking the Maah Daah Hey Trail – North Dakota”

Whitefish!

My magical minivan that takes me to magical places.  My research told me that Whitefish was going to be a stellar mountain biking destination.
