Stoke The Fire



Over the past week Ranno and I have been having "motivation" for breakfast, feeding off one another's excitement to explore and connect the endless dirt routes around Boulder. With views like these who needs a road bike?



The Gold Hill General Store saved our unprepared souls once again. The owner threw another log on the fire to help us get home with all our fingers intact.



You know....I would be a whole lot cooler if this was a picture of me riding a one-handed wheelie. My commitment to liberating my front wheel will have to carry over to '06. I am convinced you are either born with the "wheelie" gene or the "guitar" gene.... I got the chords.

Absolutely gorgeous!! What a drastic change from the straight, crowded streets of Cape Coral and Pine Island! I can definitely see how one loses their heart to the mountains. Even the General Store is full of charm. Hmmmm!

Hey Nick,
I might write a cycling column for the Camera on the "elusive wheelie" and why some people have the gene and others don't. Can I interview you for it? :-)

Nick, you got lucky with your genes. There's a third class of human that get's neither :)

Looks like you and I are in the same training routine right now...epics in the mountains. Life is golden, wouldn't you say?

Guess I'm lucky to have gotten the natural wheelie genes. I think you got 'em all, Nick.
