New Program: Backroad And Rail Trail Bicycle Touring

From very early on, it was clear that bipedal locomotion was not going to be fast enough to keep pace with the hustle and bustle lifestyle of our hunter/gatherer ancestors. The desire to effortlessly transport heaping hunks of mastodon, to swiftly reach the local flint quarry, or to fulfill the need for a tranquil cardio workout must have been the motivation behind the creation of the bicycle well over a million years ago. While it is still mystery to modern scientists how early humans were able to produce chromoly tubing, what is clear is that bicycles and traditional Earth skills are a match made in Paleolithic heaven!

Alright, so maybe that’s not historically correct, but we think that there is something to the idea anyway. That’s why this year Jack Mountain is introducing a new course, designed to couple traditional bushcraft with modern bike travel and camping. This 7 day course is a mix of field school hands-on learning and biking and camping that will take you through the beautiful landscape of Aroostook County on country roads and rail trails.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
