Fall Biking, Bozeman, Fall Biking Gear
Fall bike gear. While fall is hunting season for many of us here in Montana, it's also arguably the best season to be out on a bike. Whether you're checking the last bucket-list rides off your summer list, or back on your commuter to and from campus, the cool days are better spent on two wheels. Here's some gear to keep the season rolling....
Bozeman Splitboarding, Spark R&D, Splitboard training
Aerobic training for splitboarders. Did you find that your fitness level held back your splitboarding last season? Maybe another lap or two sounded fun, but your body was telling you that your day was over?  If so, you’re not alone—splitboard touring and riding is hard work. If you want to make more laps and get more vert this winter, you should...
A high-alpine misadventure. Like the fabled mountain man Jim Bridger once quipped, “I can’t ever remember being lost, but I do recall being considerably confused for a few days.” I can attest to not knowing exactly where I have been on a number of occasions, but the only time I really felt lost was several years ago on a day hike in the Beartooths...

I could roll out with a bunch of excuses, but, after a thorough self-evaluation, I know the reason why I failed. Here’s a quick rundown of my mistakes: Putting it all...
Biking after dark. Riding at night seldom begins in the dark. The ride starts in the evening, but as the days get shorter, it concludes after nightfall. Sometimes, shit happens, and two flat tires and a broken chain later you're picking your way back to the car by the light of the crescent moon and the toy of a headlamp that was only intended for...
All about the prairie falcon. Often, it is the charismatic and spectacular that draws people to nature.
