Jim Harris  I like art and biology and the feeling of swooping. Paralyzed 3yrs ago and I've had an unlikely recovery

Sound on☝️
Two years ago I moved right next door to, arguably, the most pretentious ski town in America. But just down the valley from an airport stacked with private jets sits a down-to-Earth little ski community where the only fur you’ll find is faux

I first came to @sunlightmountainresort the winter after I was paralyzed because the GM heard a secondhand account of my accident and offered lift tickets. That sort of kindness seems to be the norm around Sunlight and it’s kept me coming back. That, and the angst free pow days

They don't call it Mediocre Staircase. This National Monument got axed up yesterday and there's 8 more Monuments that this administration has identified for downsizing. Are wild places only worth saving when they don't interfere with oil, gas, coal and uranium extraction?

Wondering how to help in the fight to defend #ourpublicland? Yesterday Trump reversed protection for 2mil acres of our public land to allow coal mining and oil drilling. It's a corporate handout and an illegal one, so a number of conservation groups have already filed lawsuits. One way you can chip in is to buy one of my tee designs from @prival_usa, who is donating proceeds to the defense of our National Monuments. Im proud that I've helped to raise and donate more than $20k in parnernship with @backcountry @deuter and @prival_usa and I'd love if you become a collaborator in protecting these places that we're passionate about

Whoop! Yesterday I pedaled the 101mi White Rim 4x4 trail in just over 14hrs. 3 years ago yesterday I was paralyzed and on an excruciating 20hr flight back to the States. This commute was about a million times more fun. #whiterimonawhim 🚴🏼🚑
I suppose committing to this ride was an act of gratitude + defiance + finding my edges. Gratitude for my recovery, defiance of the odds against ever being able to do something like this after spine injury, and the giddy/anxious feeling of taking on a mission that you don't know if you can finish.
🚴🏼
I pedaled solo, carrying all my water, food, and emergency gear. I'm glad I wasn't counting on mooching a water refill from a jeep because not a single truck or other cyclist was on the route. It felt so alive to have that wide, wild landscape to myself!
🚴🏼
I started riding counter clockwise from the bottom of Schaffer to get the longest climb out of the way first. After dropping down Mineral Bottom to the Green River about 30 miles in, the road turned to deep moon dust the consistency of talcum powder. It mostly disappeared after Hardscrabble Hill but it's been such a dry fall that jeeps have churned up the road into loose drifts anyplace it gets really steep. Id planned to ride the loop the other direction and was thankful for @drewtookapicture 's advice to not save those difficult dust pits for the very end. I would've ended up face down in them if I had
🚴🏼
I was crawling into the pain cave the last 15 miles. Everything ached, my legs were noodles, and I started having trouble keeping my right foot on the pedal. When I'd try to stand my legs would give out. But my head was in a good spot, motivated and clear. This ride is so much more sustained effort than anything I've done since my accident that I wasn't totally sure how my body would hold up. I carried a bivy and warm clothes just in case, but they never got unpacked. When people talk about doing something "off the couch" I think this is what they mean.

Now, time for birthday cake #wriad #whiteriminaday

The best bad idea this week: White Rim Trail in a day
.
@tylerjvau mentioned he might go for it this weekend and that got my gears turning. So, after russling up a big saddlebag and driving to Moab, I've got the alarm clock set for an alpine start. If I can pedal the 101 miles in <3x @andydorais' time, I'll be psyched.
