A little upgrade for the steed that deserves it most. @shufflerepeat she is running strong and a little lighter shortly. No one can resist ogling your creation. Gracias!

Had a great run this morning, mostly because #billmurray patted me on the back to wish me well. 📷: @credoble4

It’s a hot one out there - didn’t stop my big girl from enjoying the trail with me for a 10K easy run. She asked if I’m doing this for CX. Maybe I am.

Recovery spins where the kids frolic in the woods untethered from parents, daring each other to jump in the river while others sneak a kiss in the cover of the rivers’ trees. To be 12 again. Also, yeah, now I’m the creepy dude on a bike that just showed up to the private river party. Sorry kids, jus’ rolling along here. #compasstires #wayofthedirtbag

A little urban camping adventure thanks to @lincolnparkzoo - gibbon wake up call at 5:30AM free of charge. #cityadventures #wayofthedirtbag

Pretty awesome setup out of some 3 year old rims with low mileage - needed some new life, @compasscycle and @chriskingbuzz will take them and me to new adventures for the fall.

I blame @bilbodirtbaggins for what I’m going to put myself through the next 6 weeks. That includes any style tips I pick up.

This is ‘the’ bike shop in my family’s hometown. This man has been working on bikes his entire life and has kept wheels rolling all these years. As you can see there’s little of the way of tools and stands, but if it can roll it can get fixed. One of my personal missions coming up is to help equip this shop with more modern tools and amenities to help his business grow and flourish for generations to come. This is the way of the Dirtbag.

Bucket list achievement unlocked - to leave my name and that of @thebonebell on the famed wall of the Bodegita Del Medio in Old Havana. This one is for all you Dirtbags!

Found the Cuban version of the @surlybikes Big Dummy. This actually might be the bike I use to tour the city.

It’s rare that I visit Wisconsin without a bike - but good to unwind, slow down, and fire up those running muscles that have been dormant for a few years now. Some Latin American adventures are coming up and some of them will be best served on foot. Hope your week was grand with the ☀️.

Be free. Roll True. Our kids are looking at the direction we take them. Make it a great rally everywhere you roll. Be the Freedom Machine.

These @camelbak hydration packs are heading to Guatemala to be donated to firefighters who are still cleaning up and providing relief services for the volcano aftermath. It’ll be a long time to clean up the aftermath of a 100km spread of ash in a hot and humid environment. These packs help firefighters stay hydrated while working in those tough conditions. Shout out to @abbikefit and @livegritchicago and especially @camelbak for helping with this!

Taking a mid-year serious pedaling break - been at it since late last year prepping for these long distance races and now summertime is in full swing and time to enjoy some family time and travels without putting the bike first. It doesn’t mean however that all goes the wayside, as strength and new challenges come out of breaking routines. Get a load of my new friend I met today.

Well. Forecasting the weather is a serious mystery out here. No rain last night and none forecasted for today at race start and 15 miles in and then ⛈ 🌩 . Poured heavily for almost an hour and then steady rained til mile 30. This in turn made for a very messy slip and slide across rock gardens and climbs. Gathered my thoughts at the checkpoint with friends and we time trialed back to the start on the roads. Too many close calls and the sound of $$ grinding through transmissions left little to be desired for another 70 miles - the irony is that the event is held to raise funds to protect and build new trails. We pretty much destroyed a lot of great trail today but know the best intentions were there to hold a great race given the information at 7AM. We live to fight another day.
