A digital adventure-fest
Jason Goodman, co-founder of Swift Industries, takes the mic as we queue up for a weekend of mesmerizing adventure tales and two days of skills building. Welcome to The Great Solstice Camp-In!
What makes the perfect adventure bike setup? What could the future of adventure cycling hold? Overwhelmed and confused by industry jargon? We hear you! We’ve assembled a diverse panel of highly qualified, mildly opinionated, industry veterans to tackle the issues and break through the BS. Join moderator Dan Stroud (@hobocross, Bike Insights) as he engages our esteemed panel in a lively and informative debate on the nerdier, techier side of cycling!

We’re excited to unveil the 4,700-mile Eastern Divide Trail, the soon-to-be longest bikepacking route in the world running from Newfoundland to Key West, Florida. Back in 2015, the Eastern Divide Trail (EDT) was conceived as an idea to link the two great eastern continental divides and create a bikepacking-specific route akin to one of the great long-distance hiking trails, the Appalachian Trail. Similar to the AT, the EDT would connect the grand vistas of the eastern mountains and their seemingly infinite ecosystems, to the historical landmarks and cultural waypoints that make up the mountain-East. Route founder Brett Davidson will lead a presentation to give you a sneak peek of this route, as well as the status and plans for the launch.
