Opening up the outdoors to kids and grandkids
What better way to get kids outside and with nature then to offer them a challenge, like camping, hiking and backpacking.
Music makes the wheels go round
I’m not alone in seeing music and cycling go hand and hand, since both get their momentum from unique beats.
A Root River paddle-pedal
Would you do more paddling if you needed to do less shuttling? Is biking another of your chosen silent sports? If so, you can combine your love for paddling and biking on the same excursion by biking back to the put-in on a state trail.

“When they mothballed the (Bell Canoe Works) molds, people all across the country would search me out and asked if I was going to build canoes again,” Ted Bell said. “Once my noncompete expired, I decided it was time to get back into the industry.”

How To Advice
Don’t neglect your paddles
The paddle is as important as the boat. Paddles are meant to interact with water. Not gravel, not rocks, not concrete. Sure, you hit things with your paddle accidentally. But it pains me to see how some folks abuse their paddles.

Hill Climbing 101
BEHIND THE BARS with Kierstin Kloeckner
As a trainer and cycling coach, I am constantly urging clients who don’t like hills to give them another shot. After all, is riding through flat cornfields day after day really that much fun? By learning to embrace climbing, a whole new world opens up.
XC SKIING with Mitch Mode
None of this is instinctive. We are not born accomplished skiers. It is an acquired skill. Technique is the driver. Without it we flail, energy wasted. Our enthusiasm may know no bounds, but bad technique is an open window as the furnace runs hot. Technique comes with time and with work. It is malleable, changing form as our experience grows. We may be born to ski but we are not born competent skiers.

PADDLING with Darren Bush
There are no right or wrong paddles. If you are a fan of big blades for flatwater paddling, then more power (literally) to you. Do you like skinny little Greenland kayak paddles?

Do endurance athletes need supplements?
NUTRITION with Donna Marlor
Although one in four Americans regularly uses supplements, most endurance athletes are at low risk for developing a severe clinical deficiency from a lack of nutrients. The real issue is probably one of optimal performance and recovery. Could you benefit from antioxidant supplements? Perhaps.
