We are very excited to announce that we will be launching our first e-book on Monday!


Panniers & Peanut Butter is a comprehensive gear guide, based on what we have used, broken, tried and lusted after over the past 14 months on the road. We get so many questions about all the little details about what we pack and carry (and why) – and we finally sat down and put it all into one neat package.

Panniers & Peanut Butter is 75 pages, over 20,000 words. It goes way beyond a simple list of our stuff, or even a technical look at the pros and cons of different items. It’s chock-full of photos, tips, stories, lessons – and probably everything you could want to know about all of our gear.

From the Introduction:

We have a love-hate relationship with Peanut Butter. It is the quintessential vagabonding food: easy to find, easy to carry, full of protein, can be eaten cold. Try as we might, we haven’t found another single food item that stacks up to peanut butter. And, after eating peanut butter every day for the past year, trust us when we say we’ve tried to find another option. Peanut butter stays with us, like the rest of our beloved gear, because we know we can rely on it.

In a strange way, peanut butter is the benchmark to which adventure gear must match up. It is reliable and doesn’t require a lot of fuss – because when you’re on a bicycle tour for an indefinite amount of time, the few things you bring with you HAVE to work, and work well.

Whether you’re new to bike touring or a veteran of the road, you will find useful information in Panniers & Peanut Butter, all presented in an approachable (and very thorough) way.
