In this video we interview Rick Shaffer, the “prime minister” of Wallace, Idaho. The region, known as the Silver Valley, was heavily reliant on mining. In the last two decades, they have had to refocus from extractive industries to tourism. Rick tells us about what the Coeur d’Alene and Route of the Hiawatha Trail have done for the region.
5 years ago we stumbled dusty, hot and tired into Bike Camp in Twin Bridges, Montana. We had been hearing about this mythical place during our travels. As luck would have it, we ran into Bill White, the man behind Bike Camp and were able to get an interview with him. Although we only talked for a few hours, it left such a profound impression on us and really shaped our path into advocating for rural bike tourism.
This week, we retraced our steps. Bill died a few years ago, but his legacy remains. In this vid, we give a little tour of Twin Bridges and of Bike Camp as well as talk about what it meant to us.
Our first time meeting with Bill White in 2011.
In this vid we take mountain bikes and tenkara rods on some local Missoula water.
In this series of videos from our VLOG, we are pedaling in the Palouse region of Washington. We have a little fishing interlude at Lewis and Clark Trail State Park, see grizzly bear cubs and eat our way from Pullman, WA to Troy, ID!
We’re updating from a cool guesthouse in Pullman, WA nestled in the Palouse region of the state. We are catching up on editing videos of our trip and finally got a chance to upload them to our Youtube Channel. Watch them to catch up on our trip so far!
