Bikepacking Trip – Part Two – Lessons Learned

By on January 8, 2022

Really? An update almost FOUR YEARS AFTER your trip? You have got to be kidding!!!? Well, unfortunately, I’m not. I don’t really have a good excuse as to why I didn’t update it, other than I was finishing my bachelor’s degree, but again, no real excuse. So, to my zero (0) subscribers, I’m sorry for […]

The Challenge

By on February 20, 2020

Sitting at dinner tonight, looking at my most recent “bad decision”, I thought, “hmm, I wonder how close I can get to my former self when I was in really good shape?” Of course, “good shape” is completely subjective, and to me, “good shape” may be stunningly mediocre to you, but at one point in […]

See ya later, bye 2019!

Land Bridge Sign

I made it!

By on April 16, 2017

Last weekend was a great weekend. Why, you ask? Well, let me give you a little bit of history so it actually makes sense. There is a mountain bike event hosted by the Suwannee Bicycle Association in White Springs, Florida every year called the Ididaride. It’s a play on words to the Iditarod, which is the […]

On a Steel Horse I Ride…

By on December 31, 2016

Well, maybe not steel, more like Alpha Platinum Aluminum to be exact. Since the invention of bicycles, there has always been a special bond between kids and their two-wheeled counter parts. Christmas, birthdays or any other gift giving occasion, little boys and girls from all around the country dream about bicycles at a very early age, […]
