    Path Less Pedaled is my favorite bike blog (or really a YouTube channel). Subscribe if you're at all into bikepacking / touring, gravel riding, bike and gear reviews, etc. He likes to go bike fishing, often paints watercolors of scenes along the route, and sometimes joins races just to give it a shot. I embrace #thesupplelife

    About a year ago Russ and Laura moved to Missoula MT so she could go to work for Adventure Cycling, where she's now in charge of the U.S. Bicycle Route System project.

    So it only took about 12 minutes to learn how to pronounce "pannier." I don't suppose I'll ever get those minutes back.

    This is not nearly as fraught as the pronunciation of NIKON. The British say "Nickon", as if you just nicked one. Just about everybody else say "kneekon", like "Nihongo". And Americans (and Nikon themselves, when advertising in the US), say it is "nighkon", with a hard "I".

    Some eliminate the whole problem there, by saying "Canon".

    But do you mean CAY-non, cay-NON, CAN-non, or can-NON?
