Back in September , I posted that the Bike and Brew Tour was leaving Brooklyn, NY , and that they’d be touring the country, stopping at as many breweries along the way as they could.  The crew has finally reached Nevada, and will be in Reno/Sparks this Friday! On the morning of Wednesday the 21st, they were in Battle Mountain , setting their destination for Mill City (not really even much of a town…), or further down the road to Rye Patch Reservoir State Park, a more desirable place to camp.

I was recently sent a 3-Pack of Lightload Towels and asked to review the product here on the site. To find out what I think of Lightload Towels and how I would use them on my own travels, you can watch the video above or read the quick summary below. Product Features Each towel comes in a small, waterproof, compressed disc that is about the size of three or four poker chips stacked on top of one another. When unfolded, each towel measures 12 inches wide and 24 inches long (30cm x 60cm).

Long time readers of Bicycle Touring Pro may recall my praises for a documentary film titled,  A Map For Saturday . If you haven’t seen the film yet, I highly encourage you to check it out. If you are unfamiliar with the film, A Map For Saturday is the story of those who backpack around the world for extended periods of time and what it feels like to live on the road with people you don’t know and in places that are completely unfamiliar.

If you read my previous article on The Evolution Of Bicycle Touring Clothes you will have seen that my bike touring clothes have changed a lot over the past nine years. I started my bicycling career with dark, neutral colors and clothes designed for life off the bike. But as the years progressed, I got sucked into the bike culture here in the United States and started to wear the clothes I saw others in the bicycle industry wearing.

In the summer of 2008 I traveled with my new Bike Friday folding bicycle and spent 8 days on the island of Aruba. Around this time I produced the following article (which is the first part of a three part series on my trip to Aruba, which I never published… until now) about how I planned my trip, what items I brought with me, why I chose to go to Aruba, and how you too can plan a short trip to anywhere in the world with your bicycle.

2nd Bike Commute, 1st Injury by 331 miles Late last week I installed my new bike rack and panniers, and properly mounted my taillights. I also fabricated a very basic bracket to attach the front fender to the fork. When finished, the commuter rig looked like this: … Council votes Thursday on safe passing ordinance by Austin 360 No charges were filed recently when a car hit a tandem bicycle from behind, killing two riders outside of San Antonio.
