Now, Steve is back, exploring the ins and outs of pedaling beyond the pavement, out into the wild country on backroads and trails, far from human habitation and pollution. In this book, he discusses using a recumbent trike for roaming the distant hinterlands, camping in a tent, and living simply. Join Steve for rugged adventure … way off the beaten path!


This is the book that provides some ideas for those entering the wild world of recumbent triking beyond pavement, out in the boonies – a must for all backcountry cyclists!

Steve Greene has been exploring the remote backcountry of Planet Earth since 1955, first hiking trails in Death Valley with his family. Once old enough to drive, he purchased a Jeep CJ-5 to extend his adventures beyond where most people would ever go, entering new realms of the Sierra Nevada in California and the Rocky Mountains in wild Colorado. In 2008, he terminated his petroleum powered SUV, got a human powered recumbent trike, and now continues his remote wilderness explorations using his own body as the engine – quiet and toxin-free travel.



This book comes in a special flat-velvet finish, perfect for remaining hidden in the outback. It is an ideal companion for backcountry stealth trikers who prefer to operate under the radar of humanity.
