The Long Haul for Hunger Route Map

Standard

I’ve been fiddling around with a cool website called trimbleoutdoors and have gotten a route map up for our upcoming bike trek.  With all the twists and turns, the ride has changed from 7500 miles to about 8500, no biggie.  Anyway, here is our current idea for the Long Haul for Hunger route.  If you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m about to embark on a ridiculous journey from South Korea to Portugal to raise money for charity.  Check it out at http://www.theultimatetrek.com

Top Bicycle Rides of 2008

Standard

I was visiting http://www.bicycling.com today and came across a cool article about the best bike rides of 2008.  The article was posted in a blog you can find here.  There is a lot of data, including GPS points and elevation information, for all of the rides.  They are from the US, so hopefully soon we can get some information up about international rides.

Surly Long Haul Trucker Complete 2008 Overview video

Standard

I’ve posted a 3 minute video clip on YouTube looking at the 2008 Surly Long Haul Trucker complete, that’s the model you can buy from bike shops which is designed by Surly.  The video looks at the frame, components, and some accessories.  I’ll be posting a new video tonight looking at optional upgrades and accessories needed for bicycle touring.  This is my 2nd video so I apologize for the poor quality, I’m working on improving my skills.
