Everything You Should Know Before Your First Bikepacking Trip

  Everything You Should Know Before Your First Bikepacking Trip Bikepacking combines elements of backpacking and biking, and it's exploded in popularity.Simply put, "bikepacking is loading up your bicycle with bags and heading out for an adventure," says Lucas Winzenburg, editor of Bikepacking.com and founder of Bunyan Velo, a bikepacking magazine. Instead of riding on, say, city sidewalks or suburban paths — you head to more remote areas, which can include anything from dirt roads to mountain biking trails, depending on your style. Think of it as rolling along paths you'd typically hike, says Winzenburg.

Right now, REI is dropping the price on select clothing, camping and hiking gear and more from top brands, including Patagonia, prAna and Columbia. With the continued spread of Covid-19, a socially-distant camping trip could be a great getaway, so long as you’re prepared for the fall nights and chilly weather. Or perhaps you could use a new insulated jacket or water bottle. Whatever the case, you may want to check out REI’s sale, which ends on Oct. 26.

Can These Boots Help Save the Planet?

  Can These Boots Help Save the Planet? Patagonia is partnering with a bison-meat purveyor for a limited new line of ultra-sustainable workboots.The Wild Idea Buffalo Boot comes from the company’s Workwear division, which makes heavy-duty apparel—bib overalls, chore jackets, etc.—from industrial hemp. The new boots embody the same experimental spirit as the hemp-canvas products, but go in a completely different direction material-wise: they’re made from buffalo hides, which are sourced from the namesake Wild Idea ranch in South Dakota.

These Are the 6 Best Hard Ciders of 2020

  These Are the 6 Best Hard Ciders of 2020 How about them apples? Hard ciders, like hard seltzers and canned cocktails, have benefitted from the craft beer boom of the early 2000s. Credit the expanded taste buds of consumers and the ingenuity of small-batch brewers. There's a veritable orchard of hard cider options out there, though some of them can taste sickly sweet. We taste-tested the latest and (sometimes) greatest hard ciders on the market and made a few important discoveries. Tip #1: Seek out freshness. Scan the label for the words “pressed from fresh apples.” Of the 20-plus hard ciders we sampled, the brands that were made from fresh apples, not concentrate, tasted the most like a fine champagne. Testers noted that the concentrate-derived kind had a cloying, headache-inducing sweetness. Tip #2: Avoid added sugars. Cider labels aren’t required by federal regulations to list nutritional info, so many don’t. But it’s not unusual for a mass-market brand to have 19 to 24 grams of sugar in 12 ounces. (That’s the amount in three plain doughnuts.) Among ciders that list ingredients, look for ones without added sugars (e.g., sucrose). Tip #3: Dodge a calorie hangover. Our analysis found that larger producers’ brews have about 200 calories per serving. “For a dry, high-alcohol cider, more calories come from alcohol than sugar,” says Gary Williamson, food scientist at University of Leeds. So sip hard cider like a good wine instead of knocking it back like a sixer of light beer. These six will get you well on your way to better-tasting cider worth savoring.

Here’s how to manage your migraine

  Here’s how to manage your migraine More than just a headache, migraine is a neurological condition that can cause intense head pain along with a variety of other symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, numbness or tingling, difficulty speaking, temporary vision loss, and seeing shapes or flashing lights. The causes of migraine aren’t fully understood, but they may have something to do with changes in brain chemicals and the brain’s interaction with the trigeminal nerve, as well as genetics and environmental factors. If you get migraines, you should work with your doctor to develop a personalized treatment plan. In the meantime, here are some tips that can help you manage the condition and relieve your symptoms. If you get a sudden, severe headache or any new or unusual symptoms such as fever, confusion, or problems seeing or speaking, head to the emergency room right away. You may be having a stroke or another medical emergency.
