Moab Video(s) Part 3 – Mag 7 and Slickrock

I had so much fun stuff from these two amazing rides that I couldn’t edit it all down to 10 minutes. So… I made a 10 minute video of each. If you only watch one of the 4 videos from Moab then I’d pick Slickrock. Amazing place, amazing riding, and I’m amazed that I rode …

Moab Video Part 2 – MOAB Brand plus M&M

I had some time yesterday and went through more of the raw videos I took while cycling at Moab. It sure is a lot more time consuming to edit videos than it is to put together a gallery of still images. And then there’s the challenge of finding music to use… This time I opted …

Passo dello Stelvio

As the Giro finally reaches the Dolomites and climbs legendary mountains like the Gavia and Stelvio, I can’t help but think back to 2008 when Andrea and I went on a Bikestyle Tour trip that included riding in that area. I’m glad the weather wasn’t anything like today’s stage though! Andrea rode both of those …

Moab Trilogy Book 3: The Trip Back to Toronto

 When I was trying to decide how to write this final book of the trilogy, I started by thinking that it would be the least interesting to readers. It’s certainly just as full of adventure as the previous two books, in different ways though. So I’ll just keep writing and you can make of it …

Back to Covering Bike Races

This weekend had back-to-back races and I was able to get out to them both and shoot my first events of 2014. I’ll start by saying it feels great to be back. Got to see lots of people I haven’t seen in a while, get caught up a little, and practice my “art”. And it …

Fireworks

This being the first “summer” long weekend it’s been a classic weekend for fireworks, camping, and escape from hibernation… ” May two-four” (not because cases of beer come by the 24 as some people seem to think!). Sitting here listening to fireworks brings a handful of thoughts to mind so I’ll just rattle them off …

A Second Moab Trilogy – This Time in Video Rather Than Words

After-thought, written hours after this was first published but as I first really got to think about it…  yes, there will be a third book written for the Moab Trilogy! I was just going through the videos so I could fact check and decided to edit some of it as I went along. Some time …

Moab Book 2: Being There

I feel like like I skipped over so many things along the way to summarizing the first part of the trip… how the weather was (soooo much better than it had been when I left TO), what it felt like to be on the road (and on the road alone)… I am really getting to …

Moab Book 1: Getting There

It began with the forging of the Big Rings… three were given to the mountain bikers. (sorry, I couldn’t resist some LOTR-esque start once I decided to make this a 3 part tale). This trip was certainly an adventure, nothing like the trip Frodo went on though as I didn’t see a single dragon, troll …

Moab Trip, in Three Parts

I’ve decided to break the trip down into three parts: my journey getting there, up to meeting Bob and spending a few days in Moab learning from him going to Vegas to pick up Andrea, the time we shared riding and camping around Moab, and then heading back to Vegas the trip back to Toronto …
