theHumanPace has one simple goal: To celebrate life at the human pace. Whether hiking, backpacking, cycling, climbing, or kayaking we are passionate about the outdoors and enjoying them sustainably using our own two feet (and every other body part involved with moving around in the outdoors). Plus, traveling at the human pace slows life down a notch or two, and perhaps we can all use some time in life at a slower pace.

Explore.TheHumanPace is designed to share knowledge of the best routes, gear, skills, and organizations for enjoying the outdoors at the human pace. You’ll find each of these areas separated by activity and updated on a regular basis (usually 3-4 articles/episodes a month). Our focus is on quality of content over quantity of articles posted.

So if you like what you see, please subscribe to our blog feed, Facebook, or Twitter account by clicking on the links on the right hand side of this page. You’ll only hear from us a few times a month, but when you do, it will be well worth it!
