Panniers & Peanut Butter

Laura Crawford and Russ Roca of The Path Less Pedaled published their first e-book today. Panniers & Peanut Butter: The Path Less Pedaled Bike Camping Gear Guide is a comprehensive guide to bike touring consisting of equipment reviews, tips and tricks, and of course, beautiful photos from their 14-month-and-counting odyssey. From their description:

After nearly 14 months of traveling the US on bicycles, we have finally put together a comprehensive guide to all of our gear, with great photos from the last year, and road-tested tips that we’ve discovered along the way (how to find electricity on the road, the virtues of the tortilla, etc.,) Today, it is available to the world!

We’re really excited to release Panniers & Peanut Butter and we hope that it makes bike touring more accessible and inspires you to put together your own touring gear, finagle the time, and hit the road!

Panniers & Peanut Butter is 75 pages long and goes way beyond a simple list of our stuff, or even a technical look at the pros and cons of different items. It’s chock-full of photos, tips, stories, lessons – and probably everything you could want to know about all of our gear.

    “ebook”… does that mean you cannot get a hard copy?

  • Alan says:


    That’s correct; what you’re purchasing is a high resolution PDF file that can be read on a computer or mobile device, or printed on a desktop printer for reading the old fashioned way… :-)

    I wish they would make a (or whatever) version available. Even if it cost more (so they made the same amount of profit) I’d rather pay that than buy an ebook. The dead tree version will be around and readable in 20 years whereas I have no faith in the ebook being readable much less surviving the hard disk crashes and new computers I’ll have over time.
