  • This is how Midwestern cyclists enjoy 43 degree January heatwaves. #T6standardCX #steelisreal #Reynolds853 #foreverforward #twinsix
  • I don't get completely lost very often. But when I do, I make sure I'm alone, on a trail I've never written, in a snowstorm, in the dark, on my wife's birthday. #pro #T6standardFat #mammoth #farm #lost #TwinSix #diaperduty4life
  • Good day for a bike ride. #T6words #T6standardFat #T6lunchride #twinsix #foreverforward

  • #NewBikeDay for @audiogeekdesign. Congrats on your new #T6standardFat. I enjoyed the mid-day #bikepathwarrior style shakedown. #RideMetal #TwinSix #foreverforward #fatbike #bikeboner

  • Being able to throw yourself a three hour birthday party, alone, on a windy rainy Wednesday afternoon... a wonderful gift. #38 #selfemployed #PTO #roadslikethese #foreverforward #twinsix #bkb4life #birthdayride
  • Another good one before we hand this sun soaked summer off to @tubulartommy. #summervibes #twinsix #t6standard
  • Another 11 hour Uhaul drive today  has me shutting my eyes and remembering yesterday's sweet spin up a mountain on the road with my cross bike. #T6standardCX #TwinSix #freedommachine #foreverforward
  • Imagine two boys from the Midwest, flatlanders, load up a uhaul with a bunch of bikes, drive 13 hours eating only beef jerky and sun chips, and park in a vacant lot in Boulder, CO. Immediately deciding it was a good idea to ride, they lift the back gate, disrobe, Lycra up, and roll out on cross bikes. A left off of Foothills Hwy and they find themselves on Lefthand Canyon Drive. 10,000 feet of climbing later, the take in the sights and smells of Ward, CO. Onward to Nederland, followed by a white knuckle 45 minute 35+ mph decent back to Boulder. With 55 miles in the legs, they found the nearest restaurant serving burritos. And THAT my friends is what I did today. #funfinding #ForeverForward #twinsix #roadtovegas #interbike #reynolds853 #T6standardCX
  • With an Arnie Palmer in my bottle I set out early for one last perfect summer ride. But a direct hit with a staple punctured my fun. Changed the flat in record time, only to realize my inflator was on the lamb. Now I sit here in silence, enjoying the sunrise, wondering if my wife is ever going to pick up her phone. #sagwagon #summer #earlytobedearlytoshred
  • Not my usual persuasion, but a nice way to spend the lunch hour nonetheless. #ridemetal #T629er #foreverforward #freedommachine #dirtride #lunchride #twinsix
  • Wife told me last night that if I knocked out 90 miles before 9:00am that I could take a nap this afternoon. Booyea! #riseandride #earlytobedearlytoshred #beyourfuturedanny #twinsix
  • Greeting the day with will power cloaked in madness, and a pinch of optimism. #riseandride #foreverforward #isthatabananainyourpocket #dadlife
