Recently, Yonder Journal found themselves in New England for a quick stint in Connecticut and some extensive touring in Vermont, all guided by none other than UltraRomance. Dubbed the Mad Wikkid Bike Toouah, this trip took our heroes through country roads in the green mountain state.
Part one of who knows how many days is now up at Yonder Journal.
This is too good and such a contrast to how I’ve been experiencing Scandinavia.
“A cycling documentary about a group of elderly people cycling nearly 250 miles from Denmark to Norway. Across the Western world, millions of elderly people live in care homes – often lonely, isolated and without mobility. But these elderly people are breaking free!

All City’s Space Horse might be the most versatile (and popular) bike in their fleet. These speedy touring, all-rounder bikes have just received a few notable options, the first and most obvious being the integration of disc brakes. Other updates include a removable derailleur hanger and an expanded size range. The new Space Horse Disc comes available in size 43cm to 61cm, with 650b wheels in sizes in the two smallest sizes. Since it’s a disc brake bike, you could swap in your favorite 650b disc wheels in the other sizes too.
The MSRP is $1800 with a Shimano 105 build spec. See more information at All-City!
At first glance, this might seem like just another carbon fiber “all road” bike, but look closely and you’ll see Diamondback made some really clever and practical decisions on their newest touring model, the Haanjo EXP Carbon. First off, the 3×9 drivetrain. While it might not be as light as a 1x SRAM setup, it has the gear range you’ll need for extended dirt tours on steep roads. Next, the wheels. 27.5″ x 2.1 wheels offer plenty of ride-dampening for long days in the saddle. While the Haanjo EXP sports thru axles, it relies on cable-actuated disc brakes and barend shifters for both ease of repair and reliability. I’m liking what I see here. All for $2,300 complete as shown. Check out more at Diamondback.
