ACL Rehab Cycling Program

ACL Rehab Cycling Program

It’s been said time and time again that cycling is one of the best physical therapies one can do after undergoing ACL reconstruction surgery. So why not have a program that sets goals and facilitates incremental wins?

Thankfully for me—despite this decidedly uncool situation—cycling was already a large part of…

Annual Review, 2017

It’s somewhat comical looking back on the last year of posts knowing that I made a total of three articles live throughout that time. While it may be laughable, it’s also an honest reflection of where I find myself within this space.

Early 2017 proved to be immensely difficult for…

Hate in America, A Bike Commuter’s Story

Japan. A country deeply rooted in tradition, respect, awareness of one’s self around others, and an inner-appreciation for helping people. A country that, despite it’s own shortcomings, stands out for its differences in cultural norms when compared to our own.

Norms that become so apparent—almost tactile—when I return to the United States after…

Annual Review, 2016

The Roman leader and Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius famously said, The measure of a man is the worth of the things he cares about.

As I look back on my third year of intentionally tracking life’s ups and downs, I stop to reflect on how well I’m doing as a man….

The Mindset of a Newbie in Cyclocross

The Mindset of a Newbie in Cyclocross

I’m often asked what cyclocross is, and to that I typically say something like: CX means knobby tires on a road bike, moving riders around a long course filled with grass, rocks, dirt, sand, and various obstacles to run or jump over. It’s a circuit race that starts at the blow…

Annual Review, 2015

Last year was the first time I set course with an eye on the new year through an official annual review. The pros and cons of the previous year, where that left me emotionally and physically, and what I was looking towards for this year.

All to often we hear of the…

A Simple Machine, Like the Lever

A Simple Machine, Like the Lever

There hasn’t been a book in a while that speaks to me on a deeper level in the way this one does. Each time I read through its straightforward but multi-layered pages, I get that soul shifting feeling.

A Simple Machine, Like the Lever, also understood to the reader as Nicholas’ semi-frequent…

Annual Review, 2014

An annual review is one of those things that takes weeks to think about and days to poke around at to get right. It’s recalibrating the engine; a time capsule of (sometimes very personal) information that allows us to reflect diligently. It is a document that becomes stamped in time…

Desert Ribbons

Desert Ribbons

I recently embarked on an early season desert climb outside Tempe, AZ. It was one of those days that tests your mettle, sweat finding it’s way through a helmet’s facets with ease. The sun baked and the road’s ribbons never gave way.

On this particular day the valley…

Krabbé and the Col de la Sereyréde

Krabbé and the Col de la Sereyréde

Kilometer 106-108. Climbing. Hands on the bars, my wrists in front of me. They’re wet.

Kilometer 109. Col de la Sereyréde. An opening in the woods. A guardrail, a bench, a half a millstone, undoubtedly pointing out the highlights of a panorama spreading for miles around. Mist.

To the right is…
