Mountain Biking Haul Road in Montana

Biking Logging Roads of Montana

It is cold, the last days of October in Montana and a heavy white frost sits outside.

Crescent Beach Bike Camp

A Most Frightening Nighttime Visitor

I woke, desperately needing to relieve my very full bladder. The phone tells me it is 5:08. Yet the dawn air, heavy with fog is cold and I hesitated to leave my warm bag. My body is telling me to get up- yet I resist. The restroom is 70 feet from the tent and I […]

RideOut Technologies - Biking on the River

Stumbling Along

For me, biking provides a time to clear my head. There is something about your legs and hands being engaged, rolling down the road, while your mind is free to process thoughts. I know many others feel this same way. Some of my very best poetry and ideas have come to me while on a […]
