    A Brompton Urban Stealth Overnight

    A Brompton Urban Stealth Overnight

    With my proper trail bike in the shop but a real need to get out for an overnight, I turned to a C&O newbie... my trusty 12" wheeled, very orange Brompton as my chariot to an urban(ish) stealth camping overnight. Would the trail chew up the Brompton? Would my orange gear prove too, well, orange for stealth camping? If you can't get your adventure by the liter these days, may as well do it in sips...

This podcast can inspire you...

I have to say I didn’t know what to make of his podcast at first but I realized he’s great at narrating his tours and telling the story. If you a chance to hear the one about biking with pugs. It was one of the better segments and the oompah music complimented the story well. Occasionally it can get a bit dorky but the topics he covers is extremely informative. Effectively this podcast can inspire you because he makes bike touring relatable and is able to tell some great stories about how touring can be accessible to anyone and things we all relate to.

Best touring podcast ever

Tim love the show. You inspired me to take my first tour. It may have been a bit much, as I quickly learned a loaded bike tax’s you way quicker then your daily ride. Thanks for what you do.

P.S. my sub 24 was 80 miles each way :/

Enough

The podcast is great, but please, please, Please stop repeating the list of your contributors. When I’m not driving, I fast forward when the recitation starts. When I can’t do that, I find it more and more annoying. Give them extra content if you want, but don’t ask me to listen to their names.
