Empowering The Bicycle Traveler

Bike Touring the Southern Tier

I came across this YouTube channel the other day. Dave is bike touring across the US and documenting it in videos. It’s pretty cool, especially if you have been to some of the same places he travels through.

He’s traveling from west to east on Adventure Cycling’s Southern Tier route with a Bob trailer hooked onto his bike. If you’re thinking about following all or parts of the same route, might want to check it out, because he points out some of the tricky intersections, talks about traffic, and about where he stays and eats. His YouTube channel is called ThreeWheelJourney. He was nice enough to link to my site and my YouTube channel too.

I thought this video journal was highly entertaining, a nice twist on the photo journal. I am going to try to figure out a way for people to share their stories here. Since I’m a rookie at this WordPress thing, any suggestions about how to do that are welcome!

    Hey Stacy & Jim, I enjoyed this video. My ignorance is showing, I always think of Texas as warm! Dave’s been doing some darn cold camping! Now I’m off to poke around in the rest of your new website.

      Hi Linda,
      Good to hear from you! It definitely can get cold in Texas, but according to the National Weather Service it is going to be in the 70’s this weekend and almost 80 on Monday in Alpine, TX. It is going to snow here 🙁

      Linda, I just posted an article about riding in cold weather and how to dress.
