I know Youtube has been around forever! I was mostly using it to look up songs I liked. I’m going to start participating…I like making videos.  Some will be professional, some will be homemade with my iphone and some will be riding and talking about stuff I like.

Here is my first YouTube video that was made by CyclingSoul.  They are a media company in Boulder and I’m extremely impressed with their professional skills and connections.  Check ’em out!

I haven’t been able […]

I am back and have the first race of 2014 in the books! I’ve been trying to get down to this race the last 3 years, and thanks to Michael David Winery and DeFeet, I was able to make the trip. The Andes were beautiful. My main surprise was the rain forest flora. It reminded […]
