36 Hours in Kitsbow

At Kitsbow we strive to fit it all in: work, family, and fun.

But when it feels like adventure is something others do, it's time to hit pause. Then eject.

Because adventure is just outside our door, maybe even a short train ride away. The key is to go.

From now until 2/28/20, Kitsbow will be accepting applications detailing what your 36-hour adventure will look like and why Kitsbow should help fund it. The five most creative and well thought out pitches will be selected as winners.

Download the fullapplication here and email it to info@kitsbow.com no later than 2/28/20.

New Journey

Being with the same group of guys and the evolution from 24 HR Races to the current week long trip has taken a new meaning for all of us. It’s getting older, family, becoming more appreciative of this time and now dealing with the loss of Tony. We’d been making the random 5 minute video, sharing it within our group, taking a ton of GoPro footage but we’d never taken the time to really talk about what this meant to all of us, capture that and share it with one another; The 36 hrs. Of Kitsbow did that for us.It felt good to talk about it, to hear what this means to everyone. To sit down and have a conversation about how this has all grown and the people that it’s affected is pretty awesome. We all love being on the bike and wandering into the woods, love the suffering that comes with 7 days straight of riding and those rocky East Coast climbs. But it’s become about so much more than the bike. Making this video gave us all the opportunity to talk about how much we mean to one another and how important this all is. It gave us all a chance to talk about Tony’s death and celebrate him, how much he affected us. Making this video made us all more grateful for one another, it motivated us to keep going, it affected all of our families and friends to see the this trip, see who we are – we’re grateful for this video, it’s something we will all keep forever.

"We value human-powered adventure. Those experiences where you move a little slower, put in a little more effort, and immerse yourself in the journey. We often bike just for fun, but this time we also wanted to use it for transportation. It’s better than walking because we could go farther,...

Escape from New York

Ours is a film about family, so it’s only fitting that making it was a family affair. The core team was me, my wife, our daughter, and two of our nephews; but the spirit of the film was meant to include our entire family -- some who couldn’t participate and...

Not Quite Out of the Woods

Baltimore - Our First Century

Happiness on a bike is not measured in how many centuries you have under your belt.How light your carbon valve caps are does not equate to how much fun you’re having.In the end, it's all about your perspective, it's all about how you roll (literally) with the punches.And arguably, nobody...
