Path Less Pedaled takes us on the Harriman trail in Idaho for some off-road riding and fishing.
While most of us spend our time bumbling around trying to figure out what it takes to make it to the tip-top peak of Instagram mountain, there is one person who has already found the path and climbed the slopes: Benedict @Ultraromance Poppi Wheeler. No doubt you’re familiar with him—if you’re not then you’re probably dead.
Bikepacking and bicycle touring are great ways to explore new or old environments and experience the unexpected. Over the years Blackburn has been working on various types of gear to make your journey more enjoyable.

Or you can buy the movie on iOS, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast.
Head to Blackburn for more information and check out the book’s flip through above.

Personally, I think mountain biking has some work to do in terms of public perception and stewardship. Right now, hikers, runners and other users view mountain bikers as trail bullies, rarely slowing down or yielding right of way. We can all do simple things like adhering to trail etiquette and following the Rules that actually matter to make a difference. Remember, we share trails with hikers, runners and Pokémon Go players so be kind, smile and slow down when you see other users on the trail.
Thanks for sending this one, Chip!
