In case you folks missed hearing Tim Fahey on the radio when his bike touring book was first released, now's your chance to catch him on TV. Specifically: All Things Bike with Fred Thomas (aka @allthingsbiketv) which is playing on local cable channels and on YouTube. If you have an interest in bicycle touring from the perspective of someone who lives here in Southern Maine, do a Google search with the names above for the link. FYI, We'll be getting more of Tim's book about riding the Northern Tier, "The Fun Mover Chronicles" soon so let me know if you want a signed copy.

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!

4 dudes. 2 bikes. 2 hours of Emergency Trailside repair classes to get to know your new 2 wheeled best friends. If you ever wanted to learn more about your own ride and what to do when the shiitake mushrooms hit the fan, now's a great time to schedule your one-on-one lesson.

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.

Ready for any-terrain. This particular bike designed in the UK called the Kibo meets the needs for expedition touring in the back of beyond. Definitely need this for a Sunday adventure! #quadlock ⠀ 📷@stanforthbikes⠀

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.

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.

Dropped some patches off at Maine Bike Works! They're the first shop to carry the new Hobbit Camping Club patch! Swing by and say hello to their awesome staff and check out all the rad stuff they habe in stock. . . . #mainebikeworks #nomadpatches #analogadventure #hobbitcampingclub #nomad #biketouring #bikecamping #bikepacking #bikenerds #bikepatches #patches #biketouringlife #yourlocalbikeshop #maine #justabunchofnerds #adventure

<---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.
