Packed up and ready to rock!

A bird’s eye of my gear for Bike Big Muddy. Both unbelievable and refreshing that this is all I need for the next 2 and 1/2 months (ok, excluding my wedding outfit…).


Training in the Inner Hebrides


“The mist is just whiskey that hasn’t been made yet,” our Scottish guide chimed. The lush coastal landscape of the Inner Hebrides Isles of Scotland made the absolute best of wet weather riding. In June, we traveled with family to bike from ancient ruins to scotch distilleries to raging natural whirlpools off the Atlantic shore. We got pretty good at testing our brakes down steep hills in pouring rain. Raw and rugged, the landscape we rode through showed striking beauty and authenticity through in any conditions.
