The Pros and Cons of Bikexploring

Some thoughts about biking in tunnels.

If you've never done the bike thing before, it's definitely very productive.  For example, we used them on Threeway Tunnel (among several other tunnels), and probably couldn't have ever gotten to the end of the place otherwise.  It turned out to be 7 miles long, and we still didn't get to a couple of major side tunnels yet.

The bottom line
My experience has been that bikes were most suitable for sites that I had already scouted out or visited thoroughly earlier.  These tended to be expeditions where I was picking up where I left off previously or where I simply wanted to get to an interesting spot that lay on the other side of a long, monotonous trip that I would just as soon hurry through.
