Listen in on a campfire chat about simple touring by bike on location at Marble Quarry campground on the C+O towpath. Hear the crickets and frogs chirping… the occasional owl hooting… sip on a beverage of your liking (maybe something strong?) from your cup. It’s the closest thing to actually being there.
Who else has some early bike touring overnight stories to share? Send your pics, audio or a quick tweet – all welcome. Email the show firstname.lastname@example.org or call the brand new Pedalshift voicemail line at (202) 930-1109.
