Trans Am Week 2: Jeffrey City to West Yellowstone, MT

July 4, 2016 The week started on July 4th but we didn’t have the chance to celebrate our nation’s birthday properly. Instead, I was driving the support van that day in Wyoming from Rawlins to Sweetwater Station. It would have been one of the most difficult rides that day as our group needed to ride more »

Trans Am Trail, Here I Am

I bet you’re curious why I’ve been so quiet on this blog for the last couple of weeks. Well, if you haven’t been following me on my other social media outlet, I have been on the road. On June 22nd, I hopped on the Greyhound from El Monte, California and spent a whole day traveling to more »

One of my goals for 2016 was to explore the local mountain ranges called the Angeles National Forest located north of the San Gabriel Valley. I’ve avoided this area because, in order to explore these mountain ranges, we would have to traverse higher elevations to reach any existing campground.  Not to mention, there are  only more »

It is barely the month of April in 2016 and we have had quite an awesome touring season. I know it is still early to say this, but I think this will be a banner year for the MeetUp group. Ever since we kicked off in February with an epic Ojai trip, which offered both more »

The amount of buzz and excitement generated from this trip was way beyond anything I had expected or experienced. When it was all said and done, we had 16 RSVPs, 116 comments, 13 riders, 12 campers, 5 new bike tourists, and 2 dogs in baskets jump on board a beautiful weekend ride on March 26th more »

After riding to Ojai from Ventura for the fourth time, it is still very hard to believe that such beauty and serenity can be found 20 miles away. On this return trip for my MeetUp group for the month of February it still did not disappoint. Ojai holds a special place for many of us in the more »

Well before REI announced their #OptOutside initiative, I had already planned a 3 day, 2 night bike tour to burn off that Thanksgiving dinner and avoid the Black Friday madness. So the idea to escape into Central California had been on my mind ever since I started my MeetUp group and was recommended by The more »

Have you ever passed by a place and told yourself that you’re going to stop and check it out one of these days? Then you end up passing this same place over and over and over and over again? That place for me has been Leo Carrillo State Park. The first time I passed it more »

When I was attending college many moons ago, I met a girl. No, it was nothing of the romantic type, but rather, a beautiful friendship. I admire her sense of adventure and her openness to try new things. She told me that she was going to go on a road trip from Los Angeles to more »

I have written and rewritten this post several times in the past few days and have struggled to complete it. Initially, I was going to just give you a day-by-day recount of my second Adventure Cycling Association tour that I co-led down the Pacific Coast from Bellingham, Washington to Eugene, Oregon. Day 7 was where more »
