I started this blog because in 2012, I’m cycling the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, and I wanted to save some of my experiences for posterity. Also, I want to see if I can actually write up something worth reading.

This is me, during a recent spin through the flatlands:

That’s a three-month-beard, right there.


And here’s my bike:
