The planned route - a century of no backtracking and all within city limits

It came from Wandrer Earth

8 September 2020 by Pearl

Craig and I thoroughly enjoyed watching this video from OPE! Cycling showing an attempt to ride a century on city streets without backtracking while maximizing new roads. There are so many classic Wandrer-ing moments captured here – unexpected no trespassing signs, climbing over fences, paths that are on the map but disappear into a huge pile of weeds, dead ends at a river.

Time to figure out a re-route..

This video is super inspiring (we’d like to host an event to attempt a similar ride on Atlanta’s streets) and great fun to watch. Thanks for the feature, Ope!

Ten thousand cans

Erik is cycling every road in Tucson, Arizona (all 3280 miles of them), trying (without much trouble it seems) to collect 10,000 aluminum cans along the way, and discovering adventure and new places close to home.

Lots more info here and here and definitely worth a follow on Twitter / Instagram. Prepare to see lots of cans and lots of ridiculous giant trucks.
