Why I Ride:

I believe cycling changes lives — it has forever transformed mine. Being on a bike allows me to explore far-reached places, not only in my physical body but also in my mind.

I’ve raced around the world in 4 continents. This year I’ll reach my 5th.

Why I Write:

I write to translate unique human experiences into words — to connect, share, grow and inspire. I love the challenge of communicating through written language. In a world saturated with photography, words still have power to define our collective WHY. Words convey passion and purpose, authenticity and ethos.

Why I Believe in Both:

It’s through cycling and writing I’ve learned my greatest lessons, brought twin sons into the world, lived as a family on a shoestring budget, the list goes on for miles. There’s a lot of history behind what keeps me pedaling. It is documenting the journey that keeps me moving forward.  



MY GOAL IS TO CAPTIVATE THE IMAGINATION OF OTHERS BY PAINTING A FUTURE OF WHERE THE BIKE CAN LEAD…TO INSPIRE MORE PEOPLE TO RIDE, FIND THEIR WHY, AND PUSH THEIR OWN LIMITS.
