"Every map tells a story. But Casey Greene reads between the topo lines, mapping routes for the Adventure Cycling Association that include remote rides like the Idaho Hot Springs Mountain Bike route. An adventure savant of sorts, Greene’s ride doesn’t stop when the trail ends. He’s helped popularize a fringe sport called packbiking, strapping his bike to his backpack to cross off-trail terrain before he can put two wheels back on the ground."
"'Wilderness inspires adventure, and Casey Greene is an excellent example of that,' said Gabriel Furshong, Montana Wilderness Association state program director. 'I think it’s wonderful that he’s found a way to cross different boundaries creatively.'"
"There, in the Historical Village parking lot, we meet my friend Casey Greene, who is something of a pioneer himself... Casey was the first to see the potential of touring lookout towers by bike, something he'd tried out each of the past two summers. With Casey joining us, our plan is to head to a pair of remote towers in the mountains vaulting from the edge of town."
“When I first started riding bicycles as a kid, I wondered if I could ride across town. Then I did it, and I thought, ‘Can I ride to the next town?’” Greene said. “These trips are an extension of that childlike curiosity. Can I do this?”
