Many of the areas I hunted in MT had been logged years past but were closed to motorized vehicles so access was by foot, horse, or bike. 2k for a bike is waaaay cheaper than owning and caring for a horse. I would roll up a large canvas saddle bag and strap it to the top tube of the bike. Then the bike would become a game cart if I scored on a bull. The pants are just a pair of zip-off exofficio's that I spray painted with a tree branch stencil. Shorts are nice during the ride in and the material is quiet and dries quick and costs about $100.00 less than Sitka. Here in AK hunting off a bike isn't quite as easy as the trails tend to get quite overgrown by hunting season, not to mention pretty muddy.

Just picked up a bike this past weekend. I usually run, but thought this woud "mix" it up.
Now I have to try not to do something stupid.... Hey y'all, watch this! :-)
Did my first ride on Monday night. Not too bad. 10 miles. Felt good, but I'm used to running this same course. 2 mean hills at mile 1.5 and 4 mile markers. Biggest thing was getting bike adjusted and getting used to riding after 25yrs. :-)
Looking forward to some longer rides.
Nice ride at 10 miles keep it up.
I just bought a Garmin 510 to keep track of my rides and to train with a hart rate monitor trying to kick it up with killing my self
Trying like hell to live the dream,Nomad
Did a nice 5 miler with the wife on Thursday. Just some easy riding, but stilll good to get out. Hoping to hit a good trail on Sunday and get another 10+ miles logged. Next week, I'll swithch back to running for a week. BTW-my runs are grueling.
I took off from the house yesterday, to check out an elkie area. Found some good long term stuff in there. there logging. This area is behind a closed off gate.
