Just a very quick update that I have made it home from my little vacation and journey.  Off loading pictures as I write this. I went into this trip with a pretty solid plan for the ride and a vision for my images. Despite that, this trip didn’t turn out as planned in terms of the route or the images I captured. Makes me wonder do they ever turn out as planned? Apparently, there was another plan. All that said, it was incredible and just what my body and soul needed. Here is just one quick pic from the Anza Borrego desert to give you an idea of the journey. Enjoy your day. More to come.

  1. I’m curious to hear what you and your friends thought of the Stagecoach 400 route.


    1. Jill thanks for the comment. I think we all feel it is a beautiful and incredibly challenging route. We kept wondering i the spring race was more ridable because we pushed for many miles in the Anza Borrego desert.


      1. I should comment more often. I enjoy reading your blog. Even back in April there was a lot of sand in the Anza Borrego and Fish Creek Wash. I spent most of the first day wishing I had my fat bike. But there’s a good chance it was more rideable than it is in the fall. I honestly have mixed feelings about the route. The urban San Diego section was long and some of the hike-a-bikes were heinous without much reward (I’m thinking primarily of that strange suburban section after Alpine that I think Brenden was considering removing because it crossed reservation lands. But the desert sections were beautiful and most of the singletrack was quite fun. Glad you got to enjoy a fun bikepacking trip out west!

  2. Anza-Borrego is great; looking forward to more of this.


  3. Glad you made it home safely. Can’t wait to see your complete write-up.
