A few weeks back I went out to the Fruita Fat Tire Festival to make my annual pilgrimage to the true holy land of mountain biking. Forget what you hear about Moab, Fruita has been where those who's…Continue

Last week I had the pleasure of attending TEDxMileHigh up in Denver. TEDx events are the regional off shoot of Ted.com, who's tagline is "Ideas Worth Spreading". I've been hooked on watching TED for about 2 years now, so it was sort of a dream come true to be in row 4 of such an event. Bonus: the networking group I started, Denver Young Professionals, was a partner of the event and one of our members....it's founder.

Since I built my monstercross rig up it's begged the question of how far and where could I ride. It's become the true all around bike my mountain bike used to be.

I can't say that I like the cold. Hell it's why I left Minnesota and never really go back unless it's that one sunny month a year they get there. I love the warm, 320 sunny days a year of Colorado Springs. Love wearing t-shirts and shoes with no socks most of the year. I enjoy shopping for sunglasses more than I do cold weather clothing.
