Warm weather just beckons us to grab our bike and ride to work; but what to take?  Hmmm.  A back pack would solve the equation, but on a warm day, who wants to wear a backpack as you ride? How about if we could attach it to our bike rack? How about if we had a Two Wheel Gear – Pannier...

Traveling east? Traveling west? If so, chances are you may be following Interstate 90. And if you are, you owe it to yourself to plan a couple days in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

DAY ONE Grab a bike Sioux Falls is a wonderfully bikeable city, and with big blue skies and clean country air, this is a great place to ride.

Cranberry, PA is located at the intersection of I-76 and I-79, just less than 30 minutes north of Pittsburgh. If you’re going south from Erie, PA to Charleston, WV on I-79 or if you’re traveling east-west on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, you’re going to go right through it. Take the exit and...
