Biking Adventures with My GPS

I love to travel on my mountain bike to some great places.

I use a GPS to get to these places and usually map it out before I go. Using a bicycle for my adventures makes it very easy and accessibly easy. I’m a avid bicyclist going on long trips, using my GPS to mark cool spot I want to come back to, and taking photos of my experience. When I get on my bike I feel free to go spots I can’t in a vehicle, you can just get to these places so much faster and its great exercise too!

When you’re a consistent cyclist you will be in great shape, balance in a physical sense, you open up your lungs and feel great afterwards. I have done long travels that lasted for days while biking, backpacking all my gear and find great trails that leads to camping area’s I can stay overnight. The freedom of being outdoors and riding through the trails is spectacular for an adventurer like me.

I make sure my bike is up to the trip, checking all the gears which I oil them, tire pressure and taking a spare tube with bicycle pump attached to the frame. I always pack in extra previsions like water, granola bars, trail mix, electrolytes, power bars with high protein and vitamins to keep my strength up. I try to stay cool as much as possible, stopping at shaded areas for a few hours before I move on. If I find a good spot I have never been I will create a waypoint on my GPS and come back this for later use.

 

I once found a really old trail off the beaten path and did some exploring, finding some old rocks and gemstones which was really cool. I have even found old river channels and waterfalls which I feel were forgotten because I was so far off the trail. I can find these places on a bike pretty easy and mark it on my GPS map for my friends to also check out. It’s like a road adventure that I have discovered which most would pay for a guide to take them to, or park ranger would show them.

I can create my adventure before I leave my house using the internet maps and upload to my GPS. I can be my own guide with the proper maps and coordinates to get me there. It’s pretty cool with the technology we have to get you to forgotten places most people would drive by and not even know it’s there. I consider myself a biking adventure or explorer with no limits to the places I can get to, log it in my GPS and then download the KML file to a mapping system keeping a data base of all my places I have visited.

Biking with a GPS mapping system is the best technology we have invented, being outdoors and exploring these places is something everyone should try once. Check out all the online and off line bicycle, GPS, gear that fits you, join a club and ask questions to figure out what is the best setup for you.

Biking and Metal Detecting


Do you or anyone else ride a bicycle and take your metal detector to your hunts?

I love to do this for many reasons; there are a lot of advantages. Almost all of my finds have been within few miles to my home. I put my metal detector and accessories like batteries, water, food, mini shovel, and more metal detecting equipment in a backpack and ride to my top metal detecting spots. I also like to stop on the way and get some food while looking for and acquiring permission to metal detect, it’s very convenient if your love both sports/hobby. I also use a GPS to mark my spots while I’m out, and have one mounted on my bike to navigate me to my treasure detecting spots. I tear down my metal detector and put it in my backpack which only takes a few moments. When I get to the place I want to metal detect I’m ready to hunt in just about 5 minutes or sooner. When I’m done metal detecting that spot, Steve from Sydney Brothels and I can put everything back into my backpack and take off to the next place. It’s makes my biking trips more adventures when you know your metal detecting and possibly find some treasure, gold rings, old coins, relics and more.

Here are some advantages to using a bicycle for metal detecting into your favorite treasure hunts,

  • You can get to inaccessible places that a car cant, but a bike can.
  • You can cover more area on a bicycle and it’s really easy to get on pathways cutting through to your spot.
  • Its great exercise and you can do both sports/hobby at the same time
  • The convenience of going just about anywhere you want is unlimited, there is treasure everywhere and when you bike your metal detector around you can stop and search.
  • I have spent many days driving in my car looking at places I wish I could metal detect, when I bicycle or bike my metal detector around I can stop and hunt at that moment.
  • Using a bike or bicycle to get to a beach front to metal detect it’s really great because the ocean fronts are so large and you can see the best place to get a lot easier than in a car. This is by far the best way to metal detect while biking.
  • I have even use a Recumbent Trike with a mounted GPS on the handle bars and pack in my metal detector.
  • There are so many metal detecting tools out there to help you pack your way into some great spots.

Conclusion to biking and metal detecting.

So the next time you think about going metal detecting, you might want to consider biking or bicycling to a place, use a GPS to get there or create a waypoint to that spot, get some exercise, experience the freedom of going to any hunts allot easier and enjoy the adventure, the exercise and the freedom of it.

Thanks for reading all about metal detecting while on a bicycle, motorcycle, motor bike using at times a GPS to find or save a waypoint and more.
