#tbt to standing on the edge of the earth last week. #dontlookdown 😨
Awesome session this morning with @leelikesbikes, dialing in form and movement and trying to ride so smooth that my pony tail doesn't flap πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #majorgoals -- but in all seriousness, perfecting your form on the easy stuff is the best way to make sure you're ready when it gets real. Aaand this photo may just end up in Lee's third edition of Mastering Mountain Bike Skills textbook so stay tuned 😎
Yesterday's video shoot highlights included: nearly getting my bike run over by a drunk driver and then watching said drunk driver literally drive into the river (like, no joke the car sunk completely, but luckily everyone got out okay), some biting ants, @anthonyjmilio dangling out of the car by his feet and a bomber sunset. It was a pretty good day (for those of us who didn't drive into the river). πŸ“· @maliamountainart
Fun day in the desert shooting a video for @jamisbicycles and making friends of the furry, arachnoid variety. 😱 @ospreypacks
Yesterday's ride was simply perfect. Riding in a 12 person train through the aspens was magical. Thanks to everyone who joined us!
Golden light and rock rolls yesterday evening in Glorieta. These trails are so freaking cool! Thanks @alexanderjosiah for showing us around and arranging some shuttles so I didn't hack out my lungs. Perfect afternoon πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ
Feeling a bit under the weather today, but can't stop grinning thinking about how rad the South Boundary trail was this past Sunday! Thanks @skibummin for indulging my selfie bomb. If anyone is in the New Mexico area this weekend, @mackyfranklin and I are going to do a repeat of this ride on Sunday, open invite. Let's shred! πŸ‘πŸš²πŸπŸ‚ #selfiebomb #roadclosed
I wheelie love aspens in fall πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’—πŸ’— #dork #tryingtoimpresshighschoolerswithmywheelieskills #totallywentoverbackwards #saveditkinda thanks @skibummin for the πŸ“·
Evening spin and maiden voyage on the @jamisbicycles dragonfly πŸ‰πŸ‰ looking forward to getting a little more familiar with this plus bike thing over the off season! And oh btw it's fall now, even in the valley πŸπŸ‚
Casual ride to the edge of the earth and back today. 🌎 πŸ’— Taos is special.
Going through all the media from this year and picking out my favorite photos is a fun rest week pastime. This banger from @koz_ is definitely one of my favs. Aspens for days!! 😍 πŸƒπŸƒ // Thanks to everyone who made this crazy season possible... these companies are the reason I get to chase my dreams and I am so incredibly grateful πŸ’—πŸ’— @jamisbicycles @vittoriatires @slimeproducts @pocsports @tmebar @santafebrew @xpedousa @ospreypacks
🎢 Superman got nothin' on me 🎢 made it into @curtiskeene's latest "On Track" looking real fine on this section of Bonzai DH in Aspen back in July... #ibelieveicanfly #lookslikeimwrong
So fun to see this spread of gorgeous photos from @louisarevalo in the 2017 @ospreypacks workbook! Some really cool stuff coming from Osprey this year, can't wait to show it off 😎😎 #battlescars
That awkward moment when you encounter a twenty foot replica of yourself in the @xpedousa booth πŸ˜‚ 🐒 make sure you're following my story (⬆⬆⬆) to see my favorite whacky awesome new stuff at @interbike
All packed up and ready to go home (via Interbike). If we're being honest, my head wasn't in it for Kamikaze Games this weekend. I've been switched off for the past few weeks, just powering through to when I can get some rest and rejuvenate. Sometimes you have to listen to your brain and respect what it's telling you -- I took a lot of go-arounds in yesterday's race, even going around things I rode in practice, which hurt my pride a bit but I just didn't have it, whatever the hell "it" is. I crashed twice for unbelievably stupid reasons (like forgetting to tighten my handlebars πŸ˜‘) and generally rode poorly. But it's over now, and it doesn't define me. And goddamnit, I need a nap.
Hello, world 😍🌎πŸ’₯ After a long saga tracking down a replacement headset bearing and an even longer season, I'm just thankful to be out here riding my bike on a day like this in a place like this. Sometimes it feels like nothing is going my way this year and I won't lie, that's been pretty hard. But I also realize how freaking lucky I am to be doing this, because every day spent on a bike is an enormous privilege. So no, today was not my best riding ever, yes I'm a tad bit discouraged, but I'll be back at it tomorrow, and the day after that. Because I fucking can, and that's a gift.
Obviously when your boyfriend nearly runs you over the only appropriate response is to squeal and assume fetal position. πŸ‘πŸ‘ #slowclap #imsuchagirl #trueloveiscomplicated
