Man's Greatest Invention

When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments. Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man. And (unlike subsequent inventions for man's convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became. Here, for once, was a product of man's brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others. Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle. - Elizabeth West

Purpose and Mission

To share our experience and to encourage and inspire others to use a bicycle as a form of year round recreation and transportation. To be an example of living car-free and to help others to make the transition to having a car-light or car-free life style.

Our bodies is the engine that moves us.

Bike Packing

The Karate Monkey setup for bike packing.  Most everything I need for a S240 can be carried on the bike's fork. 

10 Litre Dry Bag On The Minimalist Rack

5 Litre Dry Bag On Each Fork Leg Mounted To Anything Cages 

Fork Mounted Pump

Dry Bag Easily Clears the Down Tube


  1. I'm heading out for my first s24o this Sunday. Going to head out to the Ghost Lake campground and back the next day. Hoping it will be the first of a few trips this summer/fall.

  2. Awesome, that's a fun ride, we passed through there recently. Have a great ride!

  3. Hello. Just wondering what type of dry bag that you have on your front rack. It seems like a very nice fit...

  4. Outdoor Research, readily available. Cheers
