Full Spectrum Cycling #49 – Winter Camping Report and Complete Streets With Dave Schlabowske

February 28, 2020

Dave Schlabowske joined Sven, JK and Tony in the Everyday Cycles Riverwest Studio to talk about his recent trip to northern Wisconsin for a week of winter camping and fat-biking. Dave’s base of operations was ROAM Adventure Basecamp just outside Seeley, WI. Dave talks about his gear, his bikes and his dog! We then get into a conversation about the Complete Streets program designed to integrate cycling, pedestrians and cars in a safe and efficient environment. Dig!

Also, thanks very much to Dave for this week’s photos!

Titanium Goat wood stove rolls up and packs super tiny. It keeps the tent warm, but needs constant feeding. Company seems to be changing and the website is iffy so no link.

Heating water in a 32 oz Keen Kanteen and grilling venison backstrap for me and a hotdog for Cowboy.

Another one of Cowboy for all you dog lovers!
