Tomorrow evening, Thursday, June 30, 6:00 pm we will be doing a basic clinic on bikepacking. We will also be showing slides of our recent attempt on Kokopelli’s Trail. We will also have our bikes there with our packs. Here is more information. Hope to see you there. https://www.facebook.com/events/272023349818610/

We rode regularly through the winter, with many trips up to the groomed trails in American Fork Canyon. Spring wasn’t quite as productive with all the rain […]

I have been using Lone Peak panniers for years now for road touring. In fact, between my kids and I, we have four sets. They are well made, durable, are made entirely in the U.S.A., and after years of use are hardly worn at all. So, when I saw that Lone Peak was making a […]
