Epic Tours:

From weekend trips to round-the-world adventures, epic is in the mind of the beholder.

Bike touring is a wonderful and enriching way to explore the world. It yields such interesting photos and stories.

We're not afraid to say it: bike touring makes you a better person.

And this is where we say it.

Read about those adventures and the gear that makes it possible -- the gear we have on, BikeTrailerShop.com and BikeBagShop.com.

Submit your Bike Touring Photos

When we send a bike rack or pannier off to a customer it's always with the hope that it is going somewhere amazing -- epic.

But the accessories we sell can't take their own photos (yet). So we need you to send us photos from your bike tours to exotic locations. Send us anything from that shot of you and your bike at the top of the summit to that shot of your perfect rack and bag setup. Submit your bike touring photos here and we'll let you know when we publish them.



Seamus’s Suspicion of Ortlieb’s Motives

We generally prefer the Ortlieb Ultimate 5 Classic and Plus handlebar bags in the medium sizes.  The large just seems a little too large.  But it seems that our customer has figured out the main reason why Ortlieb developed the slightly larger version of this bag.
I love to ride my bicycle.  I also like my beer.  I don’t drink and drive, and thank goodness my bike has enough horse-sense to get me home in case I have a beer or two while out and about.
I have a large Ortlieb Handlebar bag.  I am now beginning to believe that the German engineers whom designed this bag also like to ride and drink because a 6-Pack of bottled beer fits PERFECTLY in this bag, and still offers just enough room for my mini Abus U-lock on the side.
Reverse engineering at its finest, or a fantastic coincidence? I don’t care, but a big Thank You is in order!!!
Great beer from Great Divide, a great bag, and a great bike – Ride on!
