Summer fun really opens up when you step out of your car or truck and onto something more original. From motorbikes to kayaks to cable cars, unconventional modes of transportation take us to some amazing places (or states of mind!). And the best part is, General Snus can come along on all of them.
1. Hot Air Balloon
As summer rides go, this is a big one. The view from a hot air balloon is simultaneously serene and stupendous. Especially if you venture forth from a beautiful location. It’ll be a memory you never forget.
Call it an ATV, a 4-wheeler, or a quad bike, it’s beyond fun. We’re gonna come right out and say it: wear the right gear and know what you’re doing. But once you master it, there’s nothing like the adrenaline rush of four-wheeling the wilderness.
Our favorite thing about a kayak is its easy accessibility. Nearly anybody can pick it up—it’s like the walking of water travel. You can go hard or take it easy. You can ride the rapids or slip through a quiet marsh. And at any speed, it’s great exercise for your core and upper body.
When your kick-turn and ollie days are behind you, the pavement still sings its siren song. Hop on a longboard. You’ll notice how much easier the ride is, but you still get the exhilaration of sidewalk surfing. Plus, longboards cover a lot more ground—and look cool, too.
5. Mountain Bike
Mountain biking is a pure workout, but chances are you love it. Results include smiles, high-fives, fist-bumps, dirty hair, well-earned scrapes and endless stories—enough to last all summer long.
6. Aerial Tramway
Sometimes you want to start the day at the top. With an aerial tramway, you get all the advantages of the climb—without the climb. Unless you’re using the summit as a staging ground for your adventure. Either way, enjoy the view!
The ultimate “if you know, you know.” The motorcycle lifestyle is as old and storied as the bikes themselves. Whether you’re a rush-hour lane-splitter or a weekend tourer, your bike is part of who you are. And it’s the perfect way to dial up a summer adventure. Along with your favorite snus, of course.
