Experiencing the Farm and Bike Life in Tuscany, Italy
Near the Madonna di Pogi are a handful of hiking trails that loop around the olive groves and vineyards of Pogi, which are often utilized in national marathons and mountain bike rides. The common room at the farm was fully stacked with maps and tourist itineraries so we were able to plan out our route quite successfully.
Fat Bike Greenland
From March 13th through the 23rd, I was a member of a group of 10 hearty souls that participated in the second running of “Fatbike Greenland”. For 6 of the 10 days of the trip, I rode a fat tire bike 230 kilometers from the base of the Russell Glacier to the coastal city of Sisimiut.
Racing Through the Cuban Landscape
Each year Titan Tropic MTB Race in Cuba continues to work with local communities to build new trail infrastructure to incorporate into the race, helping to create a recreational bicycle community and improving the event routes over the years. Many racers brought their families, who followed the race via bus, all organized by Titan Tropic.
There are some incredible trails around like a vista point we hiked to from the camp at Horizontes Villa Soroa. In Viñales, we visited the Mural de la Prehistoria (a huge contemporary mural), and Cuevas del Indio (a bat-filled cave with boat tour).

As the world’s cities become internationalized, the Noto Peninsula on the Sea of Japan is one place where Japan can be visited as a historical destination. The region is surprisingly accessible and offers a huge sampling of traditional Japanese culture.
India by Bicycle: A Brief Survey
When I lived in India for six months in 2014 doing environmental research, I always traveled to my host institution in the northern Bangalore suburbs on my bicycle. It was 6 km away and only took me about 20 minutes. It was a lovely trip through a colorful neighborhood and I relished the sights, smells, and sounds. But, the rides were challenging, both physically and emotionally.
