Russ & Laura in print

Over the summer I had the pleasure of meeting Russ and Laura of The Path Less Pedaled during their three-week stay in Nashville. These two have a gift for getting to the heart of what makes a city tick—especially when it comes to bike-related matters—and seeing Nashville through their eyes was a real treat. (Especially since they turned out to be big fans of my adopted hometown!)

Somehow, between touring across the country, metalsmithing (Laura) and taking stunning photographs (Russ), they’ve managed to pull together an e-book full of advice for touring, Panniers & Peanut Butter, that’s available for download for  just $20.

Anyone thinking of setting out on a bicycle tour can benefit from the experience of these two pros, who are currently in the home stretch of their cross-country tour. After the jump, read the intro (click on the image to make it larger).

    What a cool project! And it’s made that much better by the beautiful photography.

    I love following Russ & Laura’s blog. Russ is such an amazing photographer. So hoping they swing through New Haven on their way up to Boston. Cool that your paths crossed.

    Awesome – good for them! I hope to take some kind of bicycle tour, someday. I’m sure that book would be an amazing resource.

      Anyone who would like to tour and does not want to learn everything the hard way (nothing wrong with that if you do) should read a selection of journals on “Crazy Guy on a Bike”: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com. There are journals for all types of tours: short, long, solo, group, family, credit card, fully supported, unsupported, back country, on a unicycle, etc.

      And then, of course, there is the classic resource: Ken Kifer’s (RIP) http://www.kenkifer.com/bikepages/index.htm.
