In February 2010, in the dead of Siberian winter, Christopher Pike and a group of experienced adventurers set off to circumnavigate the deepest and oldest lake in the world: Lake Baikal.

Pedaling through Adversity – The Lake Baikal Expedition Begins

juin 7th, 2010

“The beginning of the trip was much harder than we had anticipated.  We struggled for 3 days just to reach the lake.” On the morning of February 25 we hauled all of our bikes and panniers down 5 flights of a narrow staircase out into the courtyard of the Baikaler Hostel in Irkutsk, Russia to […]

Cycling Maui – Wailea-Makena, Molokai

janvier 14th, 2010

Maui, Hawaii—Arriving to upcountry Maui was a relief from the dry landscape of the southwest part of the island. We were greeted by the gentle movement of tall and fragrant eucalyptus. But, as you can expect, we were also greeted by the unmerciful uphill that we needed to overcome to reach our next goal: Wailea-Makena. […]

Cycling Maui – Paia, Hana Bay, Haleakala

novembre 27th, 2009

Flying to Hawii was the easy part. The hard part was avoiding the oversize luggage penalty with our bicycles. What’s in the box? The solution: Disassembling bikes completely and fitting them into a 62 linear inch maze of cardboard. Fortunately, small enough folding bikes and smart designed racks and panniers were key to fit this […]

Lake Baikal pre-trip: south-central Oregon by tandem – part 2

octobre 5th, 2009

We were fortunate to have perfect weather and not a drop of rain for our 10-day tour of South-Central Oregon.  We carried everything we needed to be self-sufficient: sleeping bags, tent, stove, fuel, and food.  Our tandem was not light with the four pannier bags, and it took us a couple days to get used […]
