I raced the stage race format of Coconino 250 Oct 5th – 8th. Quite a bit off the back with this blog post but life has been moving fast since then! I initially preferred the concept of the ITT (non-stop race format) over the stage race format (official stopping points on course for the night where the […]

Colorado bikepacking bliss summer 2012 trip
JJ, Ed and I completed a simply awesome bikepack trip along the Colorado Trail. The pace was casual by racing standards but I’m just not sure you can use the word casual for riding at 13,000 feet on alpine singletrack. Spendiferous is a better word. JJ blogged better pics and words than I could ever […]
Pre-Dixie 200 course recon
Dixie 200 starts on June 23rd so DH and I spent last weekend pedaling around checking out different parts of the course to confirm water sources and trail conditions. We started off with a quick jaunt on the Markagunt plateau to check the Sydney Peaks trail and Dark Hollow. Awesome trail conditions, zero snow and […]

I just put in a big order for some Kep’s Balls. That means an adventure is imminent that I will need balls for.
Saw wild horses. Got snowed on. Had an adventure.
I can ride again :-) I can’t ride fast yet but if I keep the power down I can ride all day. I rode for 6 hours yesterday and my average power was 98 watts! Those 98 watts propelled me and my bike 51 miles tho! Riding in whatever format makes me happy :-) It […]
Walkabout to The Wave
After hiking out of the Grand Canyon and a juicy Portobello mushroom burger at Jacob Lake Lodge I headed down to Stateline campground arriving after dark. This also happens to be the end of the Arizona Trail. Lucky #6: I got the last campsite at Stateline campground. I was surprised it was nearly full. I have never seen […]
