Halfway mark. Now to go. 3.3 miles back. #mountainbike #onpavement #noteasy

Yet another reason I am a skier is that skiing provides one of the best ways I know to access the mountains. Having skis on your feet is like being another kind of creature altogether. A gazelle, or a dolphin... one of those swift and silent animals that truly excel at maneuvering through their respective environments.
It all comes down to moving through the mountains for me: even far away from home on leisurely vacations, I find myself coming up with ways to get as close as possible to big peaks. This excursion in Peru involved borrowing a helmet and gloves, wrapping myself in a luxurious alpaca scarf, stuffing a rental bike into the back of a taxi cab, and asking the driver to drop me off at a high pass, over an hour’s drive from town. I fell asleep in the cab along the way, only to magically wake up on the pass, suddenly transported to where I wanted to go, just like riding the chairlift!
It was cold, cloudy, and it hailed on me numerous times. And while I never got to see the 6000 meter mountain that inspired this effort, I still got to ski some slick, slippery pavement on the way back down. 👌😊 (ps- if you’re looking for ways to make your road biking more technical, I highly recommend this technique while videoing with your phone on wet roads)

A leaf by another name is still a leaf...or three.

For those who may not have seen the #unitedstatesofdirt edit that the guys from @pelotonmagazine put together with @clifbarracing head over to the website (link in bio) and check it out. The movie was filmed on race day at #racethebestofboth And is a fun reminder of the day. This video really captures the essence of the event and the motivations we had to put it together. Huge thanks to these two companies for going over and above to support a new race and also a big ups to Menso and Troy for the kind words and feedback on the format. Props to all of you that went all-in and blew this race up. 2019 updates coming soon. .

When skies were clear. The awesome #quartzville climb provided heavy grades and “heavy” ✌🏻 views. #rideon #onpavement #oregon

The #mackenziepass climb was no friend to bike riders today. Who ordered swirling, icy wind?!? (great looking summit, though). Love this ride and it’s ability to remind me that regardless of Lycra, Rapha, GPS, disc brakes, tire pressures, food, drink, and my mental capacity for all of the above, that I’m still just a little kid on a bike, pedaling with a smile on my face and with no expectation at all. #rideon #onpavement #bikeoregon #ridebikes #behumble #rideon

Despite rain sunflower looking for sun just like me today...some beautiful things you can find on wired places #sunflower #onpavement #floweronroad
