I’ve been everywhere, man
I’ve been everywhere, man
Crossed the deserts bare, man
I’ve breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I’ve had my share, man
I’ve been everywhere

States I’ve Ridden In


Colorado Trip, 2007

My father died in February of ’07, and in July, on his birthday, after the snow and ice had melted, I rode to where we used to live in Colorado to scatter his ashes there. It was a great trip for a shitty reason.

Bouquet Canyon & Lake Hughes Road

This is another favorite local ride. Go up either Lakes Hughes Road from the 5 or Bouquet Canyon from the 14, have lunch at the Rock Inn (ask for the fried pickles — they’re not on the menu), go back down the other way.

Lockwood Valley Road crash, 9/13/09

The last 30 or so miles of a great ride I took on 9/13/09 that ended with me crashing where the pin is for no apparent reason (and no memory of the accident). I broke my left shoulderblade, 6 ribs, dislocated my left ankle, and ruptured my spleen so badly it had to be removed. Good times. Fortunately, the bike came through with hardly a scratch.
