Why Your Next Camping Trip Should be By Bike

The latest video from Specialized's Adventure Dispatch features Sarah Swallow, and her husband, Tom, as they take an overnight bikepacking (camping by bike) trip in Northern California's Humboldt Redwoods State Park. The Swallows had dabbled in multiday, self-supported cycling trips for years, then in 2015, they closed their Ohio bike shop and undertook a 10-week tour of the Trans America Trail, a dirt cross-country route designed for off-road motorcycles. Currently, the duo is on a six-week adventure to explore the backroads of the Cascadia region of rainforest that stretches from Oregon into Canada along the Cascade Mountain range.
