I overcome my trepidation of biking across a 12 foot huge rock drainage barrier between me and my morning coffee. I get to clown on camera. Give it a watch – it’s only 40 seconds! 🤗
One Gravel Race; Two nights camping; 62 miles. OMG I just biked my longest off-road ever – by a long shot! (This is also my first bike race ever).
My new gravel bike Trek Boone 6 got upgraded today with 25% wider tires, and from tubed to tublesss. So that moves me from the stock 32c (mm width) tires to 40c.
Wow. OMG. Words. Just had the insanely ambitous and most fun bikeride I’ve had in 15 years!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU donors to my AIDS LifeCycle8 bikeride!
I took about 500 photos myself during the seven days of riding. Hunter also took about that many photos, too. I will make a combined album soon and edit a video as well and put links to them on this site.
