To A Clock That's Blinking 8



There is something about getting out on a bike that can offer clarity to a complicated world. No matter how congested and chaotic my world may feel, a good helping of peddling usually simplifies things to a manageable level.



This past weekend I retreated to Vail's high country in search of new singletrack, cooler temps and new training partners. Underneath Vail's preconceived blanket of wealth lies a hardcore community of athletes and culture. Hands down one of my favorite places to roam in Colorado....



This is what happens when there is no food in the fridge and The Tour's status has been reduced to re-runs. Time to re-live the break dancing moves of ole...



and polish up the balance board skills....

This past Sunday I really didn't have any big plans, Bed Bath & Beyond, Home Depot, I didn't know how much time I had so I decided I would crash hard and dislocate my shoulder. Not fun, but all systems are back to go.... Talk about things changing in a blink of an eye.

This is so much of why I owe my Life to the bike.

What an amazing human recreation it is to spin around this go ole world on two wheels and your soul.

Super rad wisdom Nick.

Nothing preconceived about Vail's wealth -- it's easy to be athletic when you have the $$$$.

Dude, is that Santa in the off-season? Either that or Gandolf blew all that Lord of the Rings cash he pulled in. Did he try to sell you any KB? Anyway, this is a good place for a Stick-Up. I saw that dude just north of Pearl in May.

That guy's name is Grandpa Woodstock. He made the front page of the Steamboat Springs newspaper back when the national Rainbow Gathering was going on.
