After 155 miles, 21h of net riding time, 17K feet of total elevation and being in places that are only accessible by foot or by bike, the Kokopelli trail is bigger, more enjoyable, and the most adventurous thing I’ve ever done so far.
Every member can nominate up to 3 projects each year that they would like the Association to support. This year SOURCE decided to vote for the following projects…
4 weeks before I embark to the Kokopelli trail a business trip to Las Vegas presented an excellent opportunity to try out the desert conditions, my brand new Source Whisler hydration pack and my fitness.
Dwight D Eisenhower’s words crossed my mind after my friend Matt Sordill, a gifted bike mechanic, left my house. We dedicated an hour to a thorough bike inspection, bike fixes and some first aid tips.
The old saying that there are no shortcuts in life was probably written by a bike rider. If you really want to enjoy bike riding, beside to ride to the deli and back, training is the key.
I ended up riding for 2 hours with my friend Yohan (an excellent rider) across a diverse terrain: fire roads, single-tracks, creak crossing and much more.
This blog will chronicle my preparations for the experience of a life time (so far lol). In early April 2012 I will embark on a multi-day, self-guided and self-supported mountain adventure , the epic Kokopelli trail, which extends from Fruita, CO to Moab, UT.
When spring comes around do you ever find yourself trying to squeeze back in to last year’s shorts? I know I do. During winter, many people tend to prefer to snuggle under a warm blanket in front of the TV, instead of heading to the gym.
Those who enjoy hiking and the outdoors will find no better place than Upstate New York. With its spectacular scenery, unspoiled natural beauty and wealth of forests and hiking trails, Upstate New York is a hiker’s paradise.
Huge Facebook giveaway! What’s on offer? Prizes include our state of the art military-grade hydration cargo packs, Spresh water bottles, our fantastic hiking sandals and much, much more
“It’s raining,” shouted the little boy as he burst out onto the street. “Wow, look at those puddles!” He wasn’t the only one to be caught off guard by the sudden rainstorm
Family holidays for us are always a bit of a juggling act. We are not ‘beach holiday’ people and everybody’s interests need to be catered for…
Endurance athletes know the important need to stay hydrated during summer training. Proper hydration is a concern for every individual during warm months. It is not as simple as drinking as much water as possible.
A year has gone by and it’s time to announce SOURCE’s annual Strap Design competition. With over a 1000 new designs, last year’s competition was successful and imaginative, making it very hard for us to choose the winners.
I have been busy training to compete in the 2011 Yukon River Quest – The Worlds Longest Canoe and Kayak Marathon (744 km), June 29- July 3rd, 2011 and have entered the Solo Kayak category. I am registered as team #32 ‘Natural Momentum’
The recent indifferent weather here in Israel has been making extended cycling and hiking trips a real pain to execute. As someone that grew up loving the outdoors in the less exotic climes of the UK, I’m not adverse to some bad weather.
