I’ve always preferred chasing to being chased. That’s why when I saw how close the pack was to reeling in Tom Danielson as they neared the finish of Stage 3 of the US Pro Cycling Challenge, I felt for him. I was sure he was going to be caught.
I pulled out the GoPro last weekend while mountain biking in Fruita. Here’s a little clip I put together from a ride with Philip, Troy and Wheaton, down the 18 Road luge-course known as the Kessel Run. It’s set to music from the Boulder-based band The Amends. Their first, self-titled album was released earlier this […]
In what was one of the coolest new events to come to Aspen, the second stage of the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge finished in town Wednesday. The 130+ mile course started in Gunnison and climbed over Cottonwood Pass before heading to Aspen via Independence Pass, where a reported 3000+ fired up spectators lined the […]
A group of us headed to Fruita for a few days of mountain biking recently. Here’s a clip I put together from a ride down Zippity Do Da, up at 18 Road. Check out Craig’s broken frame 38 seconds into it. Bummer.
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who donated in support of me in the Wapiyapi Classic. Donations easily eclipsed the $200 requested and by the day of the ride, $811 had been pledged through my fund raising page to help children with cancer and their families. Thank you. As for the bigger […]
Camp Wapiyapi, a Colorado based non-profit “offering hope and support to families with childhood cancer” needs our help. On Sunday September 26th, in what will hopefully become an annual event, the Wapiyapi Classic charity bike ride will take place here in Aspen to do just that. There are two ways you can help. For the […]
“Thirty-seven.” That was his answer to my question as to when he thought he had reached his top form, and after which he first noticed his speed, stamina and general physical condition begin to deteriorate– in other words, when things started going downhill. At the time, I didn’t think it to be an inconsiderate question, […]
The hump of the ski season upon us and spring is coming. Punxsutawny Phil thinks otherwise, after seeing his shadow he declared there to be six more weeks of winter– but apparently Staten Island Chuck (who? read here) says Phil’s got it all wrong. After Christy and I opted to stay in bed this morning, […]
Put mildly, the Maze is out there. So remote and inaccessible is this corner of Canyonlands National Park that it takes nearly 8 hours to drive to some of its namesake camps from the closest gas stations in Green River– leaving you with barely enough fuel to return. As a testament to it’s remoteness and […]
The Leadville 100 mountain bike race was on Saturday. Always preceding the 100 mile run by a week, and with Christy and I registered for that race, I thought the best thing I can do in the time remaining is rest. So I headed over to Twin Lakes for the morning to watch the field […]
