This is me with LA gear high-tops, MC hammer pants, and a bad attitude. This photo slide is dated Sept 20, 1992. I got this bike for my 5th birthday. I still remember what it felt like. Street kids are becoming an extinct species, sadly. We need streets where kids can develop their life skills. Biking is a life skill that prevents illness, congestion, debt, stress, and more. You take away an animal’s habitat and they go extinct. Create safe streets and you’ll have healthy kids that grow into healthy adults.

Would’ve stayed here all day if I hadn’t needed to cycle to work later. Nearly got to the Facebook friend stage with a pair of resident eagles. I think they liked me.

Another glorious day for a pre-work bike ride in the California of Canada.

One year ago today I set off on the biggest solo yolo adventure of my life, to date. Canada to Mexico by bike. I think about this trip constantly. Meeting strangers, seeing the landscapes slowly change, and intimately experiencing the roadway through many different towns and cities was really cool. The PCH is known as one of the prettiest roads in the world, and now I know why. The more I cycle the more I know that this is going to be my view of the world.

In two days I cycled 260km, hiked 10km, and gained 2325m in elevation to sleep next to a glacier. I did this on my two days off from cycling 300km/week. Point is, if you want something, do not ever believe you can’t do it. I wasn’t born with strong legs, I’ve just never given up, always pushed myself, and always looked back to see how far I just came. Enjoy the burn and you’ll get there.

Mt Baker’s mountain meadows. The far peak on the right way in the back are the Golden Ears in Canada, grew up on the slopes of them, it was neat to see them from a different country.

This little marmot guy introduced himself as Earl to me. I thought he looked more like a Maximillian but in any case he was quite hospitable to let me sleep next his home. His home is wonderfully placed. To the northwest you can see prominent Canadian peaks and at night time after the magnificent sunset you can see the lights of Vancouver. You should meet Earl, he’s very friendly and has lots of friends.
