Commuting By Bicycle In Pocatello, Idaho

I’ve been an almost daily bicycle commuter in Pocatello, Idaho since 2007. I’m writing this article to briefly point out my experiences cycling on the streets of Pocatello, and to also give a few tips on some commonly occurring points of minor, and easily avoidable, contention I’ve experienced coexisting with motorized vehicles. I’ll be just […]

Fatbike Winter Trail Ride

Quite a bit of snow fell last night. I witnessed this blizzard as I looked out the window occasionally from around 2 am to 4 am. I was doing some system maintenance for my job while eating a really late night dinner. I had the next day off, which made it worth it. Mostly.

Chesterfield Cycle Camp 2014

Two Hour Challenge Ride, Thanksgiving 2014

It seems like almost every year, Thanksgiving has perfect cycling / running / whatever weather. I think the universe is telling us to burn some calories before taking too many of them in. :-D This Thanksgiving, it was 50 degrees and sunny, so I decided to do my 2 Hour Challenge Ride! This is a […]

Portneuf Valley Bike To Work Month Is Here!

Learning To Mountain Bike

Chinese Peak, West Trail

I have spent the vast majority of my cycling time on the road. It’s useful (in terms of commuting), it’s easy, it’s a great workout (in terms of those wonderful weekend road rides), and there’s very few variables involved to throw off it’s sheer simplicity and ease. Most of the […]
