Back for another year!
Last year was the first time for Laura and I, and we had a blast riding from SF to LA. The adventure, the love bubble of fellow participants, and the impact we were a part of were all more than we ever could have expected. We're so excited to be riding with NBR again and we'll be training all year to get ready for the next round.

Reflecting on 2018
Well, it's been an intense year here in CA. Last month we took refuge indoors for a few weeks as a dense cloak of smoke choked the bay area, the result of the devastating Camp Fire to the north. With 6000 homes destroyed this has been a major tragedy and a significant worsening of the housing crisis we as a state face. Now that we've started to get our first real rain since last winter, and with it cooler weather, hopefully, this is the end to a fire season that is predicted to no longer be seasonal in the near future. As the end of the year approaches reflection is inevitable and while the news and events are all disheartening, I can say it was mostly a good year of my life for cycling.
I rode a little over 1200 miles in 2018, 500 of that in June for the Great Cycle Challenge, a charity event focused on ending pediatric cancer. I am so thankful to everyone I have shared the road with and those that have helped me along the way with support and donations to the causes I am riding for. Now with training for the ALC, I have goals to work toward, excitement for this next big ride, and a whole new wonderful group of cyclist to share it with. If there is one thing I have learned from 2018 it's that collective action can make a difference. Now get on your bikes and Ride!
