    Spain Part 2 – Food & Drink

    Today I am back with Spain Part 2 – Food & Drink. You could probably call this post decadence, indulgence or submersion into the culture of food and drink. In short, we tried it all, took it all in and and 100% embraced the coffee, food, tapas, afternoon siestas and late night(s) out. Our time…

    Sometimes things work out the way they were supposed to work out.  I had a dirt to work plus coffee ride planned for this AM but due to rain and muddy conditions, I cancelled. Bummer. I later texted my friend Ben and asked him if he had any ideas for a shorter gravel ride as…

    Fragments of my Life – April 2016

    Looking back to April, I only posted two times here on the blog. Not much. I wrote last time that I was thinking. I was also traveling, shooting, supporting, and living life to the fullest. That full life doesn’t always add up to long bike rides, mellow evenings and 8 hours of sleep. Nope. My…

    Ice Cream, Coffee and a surprise visitor

    What a morning. Brought an Ice Cream Truck home from work. Had to get out to ride it and have some coffee outside  before leaving for Chicago.  What a perfect and blessed morning. As if it were not perfect enough already, while sitting motionless on a rock taking it all in, this guy decided to…
