Getting excited for tomorrow's mini "funduro" at Syd's folks' place. If you happen to be in southern Ohio, come on by and join the fun! Great shot by @sydgschulz on the new trail we built, Troll Gulley.
Got really high on the #4thofjuly this summer. Over 12,000 feet, in fact! Missing the high alpine trails and spectacular views from Frazer Mountain at Northside in Taos Ski Valley, NM.
Throwing it back to spring in Chile with @sydgschulz. Hot days, slack-lining, dust, swimming, cooking on the grill and of course tons of riding. It might be winter now, but this is what keeps me motivated to train through the cold, wet season! #tbt
This year, I rode @deervalleyresort for the first time since 2006. Back then, I was racing semi-pro cross-country and I won my first national short track there. As much as I miss sprinting around in circles, I have to admit there's something to be said for riding down the gnarliest trails as fast as you can! ๐Ÿ˜‹
Great shot by @leelikesbikes from #valmontbikepark this fall. Getting low over the rocks on the new #switchbacktrail.
Celebrated the last bit of warm, dry weather with some shenanigans on the jump bike. Nice to know I can bust out a #manualmonday on the baby bike, even if it's not as long as the ones I do on the @jamisbicycles #defcon...
One of my favorite rides this year was the Crest Trail with @sydgschulz and @louisarevalo. The views were incredible and the trail itself was a blast. What was your favorite ride this year?
Remembering the @world_enduro in #snowmass this summer. Super high speeds and spectacular views. Stoked it'll be back there again next year! Who else is going?!?
It's cold and grey here in Ohio. Makes me miss the waves of dust in Nevados de Chillan, Chile even more! #dust
Built a fun little trail at @sydgschulz's parents place in Ohio. Top to bottom it's less than a minute, but it's got some cool features and is the first downhill-only trail on the property. We've named it "Troll Gulley" and are planning to put little troll dolls in hidden spots along the trail. If you've got some trolls from you childhood that you aren't using, let me know!
Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for all the places around the country I got to visit this year while living the #vanlife. For more deets on #greatwhitetheadventurevan (our 1998 Ford E250), check out the @tetongravity link in my profile.
#happybirthday to @sydgschulz. Thanks for being my #bestfriend and #adventurebuddy and for all the #goodtimes! #womancrushwednesday
Dropping off the edge of the world in Bariloche, Argentina at this year's second @world_enduro stop.
Bicycle ghosts.
Bummed to have missed the final round of the @naetracing in Mexico but pleased that I held onto my 2nd place overall ranking! Great photo by @srobarts from the first round of the series in Whistler.
Party train with #trials legends @danny_macaskill, @ryankleech and @hansnowayrey and #enduro badass @sydgschulz. #imbaws16 #imbaworldsummit2016 #visitbentonville #rockdrop
Get your butt to Tennessee! @windrockbikepark opens this weekend with all day shuttle service! #shuttle
Found a new line down #fingerrock today on the @jamisbicycles #dragonslayer.
Another great shot by @sydgschulz from @windrockbikepark. Dry and dusty when we were there a few weeks ago, but hey, that's okay with me! ๐ŸŒต ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ #desertboy
Happy Daylight Saving! With it getting dark so early, it's time for some NIGHT RIDING! Over the last couple weeks, @sydgschulz and I have been regularly strapping on our @gemini.lights and exploring the Athens trails in the dark. Here's a little video from one of our rides. #nightride #geminilights #daylightsavings #turnbackyourclocks
