ADVENTURE CYCLING. As a nonprofit organization, Adventure Cycling Association's mission is to inspire and empower people to travel by bicycle. Established in 1973 as Bikecentennial, they are the premier bicycle-travel organization in North America with more than 40 years of experience and 53,000 members. I illustrate a bimonthly column for Adventure Cycling called CycleSense. It is written by my good friend, and former VeloNews colleague Nick Legan. We explore, in words and pictures, the journey of cycling gear, and purchasing decisions. Check out Adventure Cycling here.
