What's Jason reading on this snowy Martin Luther King Jr. day? A bike touring book of course... Surly everyone who considers [and succeeds] in riding a bike from Oregon to Chile must be a hard core cyclist right? Not in @jedidiahjenkins case. In fact, he hadn't even ridden his @surlybikes Long Haul Trucker with panniers on it before the first pedal stroke of his journey. Hell, the first time he ever stepped on a clipless pedal was the morning he set off. Perhaps that's why I enjoyed "To Shake the Sleeping Self" so much. It was about as far from a 'been there done that' braggadocios travel book as you can find. And as you already know, the really interesting parts of any adventure story are when things don't go as planned and everything heads [metaphorically] south. Plenty of that happening in TStSS. While his ride was impressive, the journey he went on learning about his family relationships, his spirituality and his own personal self was even more so. Check it out if you get the chance.

I wanted to give a shout out to our buddy Rod who is riding in his first bike race of any kind. He and a couple dozen other folks are doing the Twin Brook Fat bike race up in Cumberland this morning and I gotta give em all props for getting out there and enjoying this awesome Maine winter. If you gotta race, it might as well be on a fat bike right? Good luck Rod!

In September 2018, my friends and I, decided to ride from Mumbai to Goa by Bike along the Konkan Coast. This is Day 1/9 of 8-part vlog series. . Ten years ago, I went on my first long distance bike ride. A few friends and I at the time decide to ride from Mumbai to Goa by Bike. Since then I've had my share of Konkan Bike Trip (or 5) but those were always by the motorized version of a two wheeler. But this time, an idea struck to go Bicycle Touring from Mumbai to Goa along coastal route. . . However, the challenges were greater.Now that we had to deal with hilly terrain along coast. The roads are not flat at all as I expected (or missed noticing on motorbike or comforts of a car) and it was challenge for someone who was bicycle touring for the first time. However it was one of the best trips that I've been on. And now I'm hooked on to two wheels for life. . . .

What's Jason reading? Better hide your staplers bro-grammers. If you thought the TPS reports from Office Space were too crazy to be real, you'll enjoy reading Lab Rats by Dan Lyons. His first book Distrupted was a scary look under the ping-pong table and beanbag veneer of the nutty tech company he went to work for after getting laid off from a more traditional company. After writing that book, he got a lot of fan mail from people who wrote to him saying that if he thought that tech company was crazy, then they should check out the ones they work in. And he did. Goodness, if these are the companies that business schools are holding up as epitomes of the modern work place, we're all in trouble. Makes me want to take a baseball bat to ever printer in Silicon Valley.

OK, for all you clean eaters out there who don't like to measure the capacity of your bikepacking bags by the number of cans of Moxie and packs of delicious NECCO wafers they hold, you'll be happy to know the new @revelatedesigns Mag Tank 2000 also fit 9 healthy clementines.

If you've been waiting for our next batch of gear from @revelatedesigns, better swing by soon before the MBW monster has his wicked way with your bags. We're now topped back up to where we have every bag in every size they make in stock.

Need a winter biking helmet? We have a Medium Giro Timberwolf which I used a few times and decided it was too small for my noggin when I wear the multitude of head warmers I like to ride in. My fat head = 1/2 price helmet for you. $50.

Goofing off or resting up ahead of a busy day at the shop? You decide. Thanks Dave for sending this pic of Surly Mike from Sat morning's fatbike ride on the Eastern Trail.

<---SWIPE LEFT-- Here's some close ups of the patches that Spencer (aka @nomadpatches) dropped off when he visited the shop. You can order buy them directly from his site www.spencerhawkes.com or go all organic and pick-your-own off the new MBW Patch Tree™ conveniently located at 885 Portland Road in sleep Saco, Maine. 3 fun facts: 1. Make sure you Swipe right cause the close up of the Hobbit Camping Club patch will show you why this spanking new design is bound to be a classic. 2. The Bikepack patch is the last of its kind for now as even Spencer himself is sold out of it. 3. In case you didn't already know, the shield shaped patch with the handlebars on it feature a handlebar bag with a map of downeast Maine which was inspired by a tour Spencer took here in Maine a few year back. A great guy, making great art. Cheers Spencer!

We were so lucky to have Spencer @nomadpatches and Sam stop by the shop to top-up our patch inventory in person. Not only are we back up to speed with our Nomad and Bikepack patches, but we now have his new Hobbit Camping Clubs too. We were only able to snag a few, so if you want one, get in touch. They will undoubtedly be gone by second breakfast. BTW, Spencer does so much more art than the woven kind to stick on bike bags. Personally, I think he should be chosen to draw the art for the 6e D&D Dungeon Masters Guide, but that's just me. Check out his website to see all the cool projects he is working on: www.spencerhawkes.com ' ' ' #unplugandride #bicycletouring #biketouring #bicycletour #biketour #biketouringlife #bicycletouringlife #bikepackinglife #bikepacking #biketouringlife #bikepackinglife #revelatedesigns #swiftindustries #greatdivide #tourdivide #gdmbr #adventurecycling #adventurecyclist #justride #s24o #rivendellbicycleworks #rivbike #mainelife #vacationland #maine #sacomaine #portland #portlandmaine #analogadventuring

<---SWIPE LEFT-- Who would have thought that Theron's handmade Kevlar apron would be of such interest. Here's a few more pic for those who've asked. Not bad for someone who says he's never sewed before right? Hopefully he doesn't get a big head from all this attention, but I should point out the brass rings he chose. They look nice now, but they should look even more awesomer when they start to patina from all the sweating he'll be doing in our un-air-conditioned shop this summer. Theron, did I mention in your job interview that I'm too cheap to run the AC? No? Oooops. My bad.

Let me introduce you to Theron (rhymes with Daren) - our newest full-time mate on the goodship MBW. Not only does he bring a shedload of bike knowledge and mechanical ability to the team, but he's also a super friendly dude and all around nice guy who lives in Saco and loves to ride. You gotta meet him. Normally, the first day in a new workshop can be a little daunting (even for those who are old hands with all things bikey), but if he was, he didn't show it. Hell, he even set the bar pretty high for the next new hire when he casually let slip that he was so excited to start working at the shop he sewed his own rip-stop, Kevlar work apron complete with MBW pink stitching the night before. Kick-ass first day Theron. Looking forward to seeing what handicrafts you make us jealous over tomorrow.

I've made it my mission this Dec break to take some downtime to walk, the walk and unplug a little. If you know of a better way to do that then working on a glow in the dark puzzle featuring a wizard surrounded by fireballs then let me know...

This morning's "Ride Along With Santa" at Clifford Park was the perfect example of the important work @communitybicyclecenter does for the kids in our area. If you're considering donating to a local organization before the end of the year, I can't think of a better cause to support than the CBC. Check out www.communitybike.net/ways-to-give for easy ways to make a big impact with those who need it most. A big thanks to Cliff and the entire staff for all you do for the community. Santa told me you all made his 'Nice' list this year. Merry Christmas CBC!

Let me say a big thank you to everyone who came out to our Saco Swappo. At one point there were more bikes parked outside the shop than we have inside. There must have been a bunch of you because I think I made more espressos today then I made for entire month of December. We really appreciate the cookies, drinks and gifts you brought to help us celebrate a great year here at MBW. You guys have a real sense of humor and the swap gifts were all hors catégorie. Merry Christmas everyone. See you Jan 2nd!

We kicked the Saco Swappo party off a bit early with some kick ass boots... Enjoy your new winter riding shoes from @45nrth my friend! Stop in if you are passing. The party may be over now but we still have hot chocolate and cider warming in the crock pots, nibbles and some homemade cookies, so get your booties down here before we close up for our holiday break around 4.

If you plan to ride on any of the 50+ miles of snowmobile trails in Saco, Biddeford, Scarborough, or Dayton this winter, let me suggest you put the @saco_pathfinders / @sacopathfindersme on your holiday shopping list and take out a club membership. MBW pays for a business membership as a small gesture of support and I think it's money well spent. In case you don't know, the Pathfinders actively encourage the use of their trail network by non-motorized users. Don't take these wonderful trails for granted as many networks in Maine are closed to fat bikers, cross country skiers and showshoers. For only $35 a year, a family can enjoy all the benefits of recreating on the trails with a clear conscious as well as access to the clubhouse in Saco on the weekends for a place to warm up and grab some hot grub before heading back out on the trails. Please give em your support by becoming a member / renewing your membership or by volunteering some time. Membership applications can be printed off on www.sacopathfinders.com [The picture was from this time last year - I wish we had that much snow now.] ' ' ' #fatbike #fatbikelife #mountainbike #bicycletouring #biketouring #bicycletour #biketour #biketouringlife #bicycletouringlife #bikepackinglife #bikepacking #greatdivide #tourdivide #gdmbr #adventurecycling #adventurecyclist #mainebike #maine #sacomaine #portland #portlandmaine #unplugandride #analogadventuring

Wow. Welcome to the party Nicky! About time you brought your Sacco Swappo gift in. Just kidding, I love the gift bag - though I have a feeling that must have bumped you over the $10 limit. 😜 (If you too want to play along in MBW's Secret Santa with us on Sat during our Christmas party, just bring in an under $10 gift by 11:30 on Sat and join the fun.)

Hot damn. We've decided to take a little break between Christmas and New Year to charge up the batteries. Come party with us on Sat to celebrate a super successful year here at MBW. Hot cider / coco and conversation at 11:30 follower by the opening up our Saco Swappo gifts. UPDATE ABOUT THE RIDE WE WERE PLANNING: The dynamic duo had previously planned a trail ride before the Saco Swappo, but we've now decided to cancel that as the trails surrounding the shop will undoubtedly be a little too sloppy to safely lead a group ride after Friday's rain and the resulting melting snow. Bonus points to you however, if you decide to ride to the shop solo!
