Floating on a sea of clouds: Golden hour on Tam.
On August 5, I will be riding the Mt. Tam Double Century in Marin. 200 miles in one day (most I've ever ridden) to raise money for the fight against Alzheimer's, a disease that has hit my family far too close to home.
It's been inspiring to see the community come together to sponsor my effort by contributing to the Alzheimer's Association which funds research, provides care for those suffering from the disease and support to family and caregivers who face dementia daily.
If you can, please consider donating via the link in my profile. My deepest thanks. 📸 @chaos888
The Swift has a rich history of symbolism for their use of speed and agility. They can join together for protection or for communal joint efforts to accomplish tasks and goals. They master the air with expertise, exactness, even ferocity when needed, to go the endurance and distance that is called for. Seems appropriate that we partnered with @ridepdw and have several of their Swift bottle cages to raffle off for your inspiring and symbolic efforts on Aug. 26. #swiftsummit200#doublecentury#centuryride#oregonbikeracing
They say "Do one thing every day that scares you." Well, I don't know about every day, but today I did something to push my comfort zone and my physical limits. A 270km ride from Magdeburg to Judith's aunt and uncle's place in Pirna (south of Dresden). It was a crazy 9.5 hour adventure through beautiful fields of sunflowers, wheat, and corn.
At times Google's idea of the best route included 7km of forest trail and tried to convince me to cut across a military life fire training range. That detour (and the ensuing double flat) told me it was time for a healthy lunch of a donut, ice cream, and a chocolate milk.
But eventually I made it to the beautiful sights of the Saxony Elbe Bike Trails, through wine country, past Meißen, and Dresden and to my destination.
What a trip, now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna give my butt a couple days break from the saddle. But not too long, Ironman Coeur d'Alene is only five weeks away.
This is Muhammed. He broke his thumb during our 13 week training series for the 1 day, 203 mile Seattle to Portland ride.
The day before we were going to attempt the one day ride (still in his cast), we found out his bike was "stolen." We cried, we screamed, we cursed but we made it to the finish, both on bikes we never rode before. He inspires me to never, ever give up. "Fuck the haters" I told him and you'll succeed.
This is Major Taylor Project.
A little glimpse of the weekend. It started Saturday, with a burrito at 0315 in the morning. Rode my bike all day with my pal @danimal.creamer in the STP bike ride and accomplished a personal goal of riding 200miles in a day. Sunday I got to see my friends ride in with the Major Taylor riders. Real big thanks to dan for riding and dragging me through the end, Brad Heidi the old town guys @oliveapproved @trykinyki @seannyffeler @jimlabayen for the support, and the rest of the metropolis crew for the high fives and encouragement (beer). It meant a lot. #damnitfeelsgoodtobeabikenerd#rideyourbike#justhavefun#placesmybiketakesme#stp#goals#accomplished#doublecentury#unlocked#howimetropolis 📸 @heidefll @dirtjr
Over 200 miles in two days, what a ride! Had a great crew who came back to draft me when I started slow on the second day, and who sprinted at 17mph with me for the last 20 miles into Portland. Such a fun weekend.
What a weekend!!! Now that I'm home, the Pacific Northwest blues has finally kicked in.
I would like to start by thanking everyone that donated and took the time to send me encouraging messages while riding Saturday. They really helped get me through it. Those of you who shared your stories of the loved ones you also lost to PC, thank you for bringing a tear to my eye, and helping me keep pedaling my heart out.
The next day, after the ride, something crazy happend!!! When I talked to my mom to tell her how it went, and explain to her where the donation money was going, she literally burst into tears. She didn't know what charity I was helping out this time around, and
she told me my father died from PANCREATIC CANCER. I always knew he had cancer, but didnt know which type. I instantly started crying as well.
Life works in mysterious ways, and there is a reason for everything...Now I know why I had such a strong connection with Noni, and I will continue to help this cause in anyway I can for her, AND my father.
Special thanks to our wonderful hosts and tour guides while we were in your beautiful town...we had a blast and could of stayed longer but for now back to work with a huge smile ❤😁🚴♂️ #fuckcancer#pancreaticcancer#teamcretins#fixingtosavelives#rideyourheartout#cinelliusa#vigorelli#heavypedal#seattletoportlandfixed#stp#doublecentury#chiefedbuns
#stp2017 one-day #doublecentury is a wrap @matteosteiner made the full 200 with help of a new-found friend Zak and back cramping took me out at 150. Sunday in Portland vs. a second day of riding is really the way to go
