Jules and I have taken for a habit to go on “s24o” trips lately.
What is that, you might wonder. Well “a S24O (pronounced “Es-Two-Four-Oh”) was coined by Grant Peterson of Rivendell. It is a sub-24 hour overnight bike camping trip.”. (from here)
…and it’s genius! Because we are away from home less than 24 hours we really don’t need to plan much and therefore we’re much more likely to go for a trip. This trip was the second one we’ve done this year and once again, when we rode home, we felt we’d been away for much longer.
It really isn’t about riding fast or riding far, it’s just about going for a small trip outside of town and that, more often :)
