• Wake up at / before dawn in the tent you set up in your backyard the night before
  • Load your bike and gear onto / into the most fun car you have
  • Grab coffee at the best place nearby, enjoy the whole cup with breakfast on the patio outside (optional: plan the day’s route)
  • Drive only on backroads all the way to a local trailhead with windows down, playing preloaded road tunes
  • Ride all day, getting lost, stopping everywhere cool
  • Eat lunch and take a nap on top of something tall and in the sun
  • Roll back into the trailhead at twilight
  • Pick up cold beers and ice en route home
  • Get a tall fire going in the fire pit next to your tent and camping chairs
  • Throw meat on the grill over the coals, drink beers while flipping and eating
  • Stare at fire until the day’s weight in your legs and arms and face weigh you down to sleep
