Pedal On; A Marraige of Biking and Geocaching = Perfection

For those of you that don't know, I enjoying Geocaching, with or without the family. It's just another relaxing pass-time.
Since I haven't hunted in over 10 years, Geocaching gets me/us out in the woods, and that's always a good thing!!
I love caching with the family, mainly watching the kids go banannas when we make a find!! ;)
So accordingly pedaling a bike while Geocaching is a natural. I've started a new cache (cash) series called "pedal on." it's going to start in the old Whitney Tailings ponds, just north of Vic Power Park here in Hibbing. When it's all said and done, it should be right in the neighborhood of 25-30 miles. How many caches am I gonna put out? I do not know, but I'll space them out nicely after the 1st 4 or 5. I for one don't like getting on the bike, only to get back off in a .10th of a mile, so expect 1/2 to 3/4 of a miles between caches.
So this little project should get me out turning the pedals more, and making quite a few more hides!!



  1. I hope to get up that way once you get them all out. My geocaching has really suffered ever since I've gotten into biking. I guess once I'm on the bike I really don't want to stop riding. Maybe this year I'll be better at diversifying my interests.

  2. That sounds like a lot of fun. I never knew of such until now. Would be fun to ride and 'cach'

  3. Its popular here in Scotland!, i should put some on the coast..only accessible to those on fat bikes at the lowest tides...!
