On July 8th, Ben Weaver will be departing on a cycling adventure where he will circumnavigate Lake Superior in 16 days. This 1,300 mile self-supported journey will raise awareness in the towns and cities that he passes through, where he will present his poetry, music and advocacy in partnership with many local environmental non-profits such as Save the Wild UP, Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve, and the Sierra Club.

“We claim the day with our legs, we are the new great explorers…”

The bike tour and stewardship project, Surrounding Water, will be a culmination of outdoor-advocacy, storytelling, poetry and music. Bikepacking troubadour, Ben Weaver, will be releasing his 8th LP “I Would Rather be a Buffalo” in conjunction with his adventure. Here is a sneak peak at Ben’s muse.
