Today in Stoke: Two Wheels, Two Planks - Pedal Powered Skiing in Arctic Norway

505cover-250x323.jpg
Husband-and-wife photography team Brian Mohr and Emily Johnson are doing things the hard way with their Wild People, Wild Places project: For their most recent adventure, featured on the cover of Wend Magazine's January 2011 issue, the duo toured Norway's Arctic Alps for a month using only skis and bicycles, partly to help put their own globetrotting lifestyle into perspective and partly to atone for all the jet fuel used for even this no-frills eco-trip.

Tonight they're bringing their slideshow from the trip, Two Wheels, Two Planks: Powered Skiing in Arctic Norway to Neptune Mountaineering (633 South Broadway Suite A, Boulder, CO) for a free show at 7 p.m. Pick up a $5 raffle ticket to benefit the Winter Wildlands Alliance and enter to win prizes from more than a dozen sponsors backing the Wild People, Wild Places project and slideshow tour.

Bicycles offer an important mode of transport in many developing countries. Until recently, bicycles have been a staple of everyday life throughout Asian countries. They are the most frequently used method of transport for commuting to work, school, shopping, and life in general.

Thanks for this Colin.  What an incredible trip this was.  We skied our butts off, biked a bit, too, and enjoyed more freedom and easy access to the mountains than ever before. It was a ski trip first, and a bike trip second, so the biking element was merely for ease and freedom of transportation from one skiing base-camp to the next... It has taken our bike-powered adventures to a whole new level, and we continue to use our bikes more than ever close to home in Vermont for getting around our valley, running errands, fetching milk, etc...
