Southern Arizona is a great place to see the outdoors and to go camping. And to ride bikes. So what about combining these two – and you get bike camping?! It seems more people are wanting to give this combination a spin so more local bike shops are leading trips. It probably helps that we have some great camping spots right in our backyard. Recent campouts include rides to Catalina State Park, Cowtown Keeylocko, and even up Mount Lemmon.
In this episode, we talk with Ben Daigneau about his journey in learning what it takes to go camping by bike. He shares about barriers that he encountered, what he discovered about himself to overcome them, his upcoming 5 day bike camping trip, and how it’s probably not as hard to get started as you might think.
