Winter Training for Cyclists: riding the trainer

Winter training for cyclists can be fun but my ability to put up with bitter-cold temperatures lessens with each blowing, freezing-cold, ugly Kansas

As I got my bikepacking setup dialed in for this trip, I had a few things to figure out. I ride a small frame fatbike with a tiny inner triangle that doesn’t fit much gear. The frame bag is the size of a woman’s clutch. I can barely fit 100 oz water…

Love Muffin. If you are in Moab, it is definitely the place for coffee and breakfast. The muffins, some gluten free, were heavenly and the coffee was fantastic, not to mention the real food too. Our group descended on the restaurant in the morning. The…

If it was up to me, I would sleep until the sun warmed my tent and removed all the condensation before I got going, but we had mileage goals in mind and a group of early risers. Plus I woke up to dark, dreary skies. I woke to the sounds of talking and…

After 12 hours in Jim’s truck, we finally pull in to Fruita’s campground where a few others of our bikepacking gang were already hanging out. It was a rag-tag group of ten guys with adventure, bikes and photography in common. Some of us have websites and…

Last night was a test run with my bikepacking setup. I needed to do an overnight trip to make sure I felt confident with my gear and setting up camp. Plus I borrowed a camera that has pretty good night vision. I am not going to be able to fit a tripod on…

I’m doing it. I am intentionally hurting myself. Why you ask? Some days it makes more sense than others, but I want to see how good I can be on the bike. Yeah I know. I’ve said that before. I think I’ve even typed those words on this blog before, more…

The Desert Ramble proved to be just that – a ramble through the desert. We started out with a plan, but the wet, muddy conditions, photo ops and numerous hike-a-bikes slowed us down, way down, so the group made new plans. We ended up having more time in…

Day three started out early and cold. We needed to get moving early to make up time from the first two days. I made sure to wake and get my stuff together as quickly as possible since I was usually the slow one packing up. My tent was covered in ice and I…

After everyone arrived and Erik reassembled his bike, we rode to Fruita’s Hot Tomato eatery for some delicious pizza and beer. Bikes, cameras, beer and pizza would be a common theme throughout the week. We ate and geeked out over cameras and bikes…

I had no idea what I was in for. We had a trip ringleader with a plan so I concentrated on having food for three days, water for two days and equipment I needed to survive the ride on the Kokopelli. We would be bikepacking and camping for seven days. The…

It started out as a group email to a gang of cycling photographers about a name for a website and grew into a discussion about life, cycling and the need for a retreat. This group of creative cyclists has been friends for nearly half a decade. Many of us…

Inspiring you to Feed Your Monkey!
Introduction
It's time to get off the couch and Feed Your Monkey!

We all need adventure. The Adventure Monkey is inside of us all. Without feeding our Adventure Monkeys we get at the minimum restless and at worst clinically depressed. Some people feed their Adventure Monkeys with daredevil X-game types of adventures. Others feed them with travel, meeting new people or raising a family. There is an unlimited number of ways to feed our Adventure Monkeys. If we don’t, we end up with a stale, tasteless and boring life that lacks the excitement we all crave. Ever feel that way? It’s because your Adventure Monkey is hungry or worse yet, starved. Feed Your Monkey!

Currently I am living in a 5th wheel RV, saving money, writing and getting ready for the adventures life throws my way.
