I want my life to feel like an adventure.

Favorite Experience

My first bike tour was a 2,600-mile solo ride from Oregon to Missouri 10 years ago. I met so many people and saw remote parts of the U.S. I had no idea existed before that. It completely revolutionized my outlook and self-confidence.

The Bicycling Big Book of Training will help you develop a focus on speed, as well as give you the confidence to try a different discipline, like mountain biking.

There's no better way of seeing the world than by bike.

It’s transformative, pushing through all the hard moments and learning about how strong you can be.

Favorite Experience

Long, solo missions on a bike — the way everything else sort of falls away, and it’s just you and the road or the trail, and your only job is to turn the pedals, and your only concerns are when you’ll eat and drink next and where you are on the map.

I remember my first group ride. Toward the end we hit a big climb. I was feeling so terrible that I had to get off the bike and walk. If I’d had The Bicycling Big Book of Training, it would have helped me understand what to eat during a ride and that you only have so much time “in the red” before you have to pay for it later.

Push through the hard moments and learn how strong you can be.

I love to test myself. I can be very competitive, but it's not so much about beating someone else. It's about using them to make myself better.

Favorite Experience

A group ride that knows when to turn it on but also knows how to cater to everyone. And those little moments when the ride is just grooving along and you are able to chat with the person next to you.

Cycling is a constant learning process. You can never discount a bit of sound advice, whether it comes from someone within a group ride or a book like The Bicycling Big Book of Training. Every cyclist is different, so with a little trial and error, you can find your own rhythm on and off the bike.

Chasing the lead is a team effort.
