I have been traveling to Stanley, ID, for nearly two decades, exploring its rivers, lakes, and trails, but it’s been the sinewy network of dirt/gravel roads that spider in all directions that have really captured my attention and sparked my sense of wanderlust.
Bears do it, so do European hedgehogs. And few, until recently, knew that the fat-tailed dwarf lemurs of Madagascar do it, too. I’m talking about hibernation. Or for cyclists, off season.
There's something really special about the single speed clan, a two-wheeled family of sorts that draws from every nook and cranny of our diverse, and colorful, cycling community and congregates once a year. No one is excluded. All are welcome.
