Seeing the Unsung: Our "Other" Trail Users

 

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.

 

I've been a big fan of TED because it's about…

73 miles and 7.5 hours to Think a Little

 

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. My first 10 years of mtbing was done on 1.9 to 2.1 tires with 2.1 seemingly "way big" at the time. But then again, I was riding it everywhere. To the trails, on the road, gravel roads, and wherever. But with small tires, steeper angles, bigger gears...you could. Now though my mtb has a 150mm fork up front, 39/26 gearing up…

Tandem bike for friend who's lost her sight.

My friend Michelle Abdi from high school recently lost her site due to a rare disease. One of two people in the world to have it at this point. The thing she misses the most? Bike riding.

 

She is actually in Blacksburg, Virginia...I know a far cry from here...but I think that riding a bike is a great thing and know that finding a tandem bike that is inexpensive for her needs is tough. So I'm reach out to all my networks. She just misses the feeling of riding and has someone…

Happiness is a Cold Bike Ride

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. Cheaper that way too. But yet there is something to be said about a bike ride when the weather is a bit brisk…
