Well, I did it! This past Saturday I walked across a stage to receive my Bachelor's degree in Outdoor Recreation Leadership and Management. It feels weird knowing that I will not be in a classroom taking notes or studying for the next exam in the foreseeable future. That being said it makes me beyond excited to throw myself fully at my life's next chapter, Rambling on Bikes!
Rambling on Bikes is the brain child of both myself and my partner Olivia Walcott. It was developed in an effort to record our adventures and act as an umbrella from which all of our adventures can take place under! In the future we plan on riding the Baja divide and "Hemistour" under the Rambling on Bikes umbrella.
The logo and color scheme was designed by our extremely talented friend Savannah Wheeler and we can't thank her enough for the help!
The first large scale adventure under the Rambling on Bikes umbrella will be the Bikepacking Triple Crown (as I am sure most of you know already)! for those of you who don't know I will racing to Arizona Trail Race, Tour Divide, and Colorado Trail Race in an attempt to break Jay Petervary's cumulative time of 27 days, 18 hours, and 33 mins for all three races!
I am finished with school for now which means I can fully focus on developing Rambling on Bikes and training for the Triple Crown. This is so exciting and I can't wait to see what it develops into.
The training for the Arizona Trail Race has been going very well. I am battling a bit of a head cold right now which is requiring me to sit back and focus on finding sponsors for the races and develop my gear list. I have been doing lots of long hikes with all of my gear and bike on my back to prepare for the Grand Canyon Thru Hike. Look for a longer post on the set up and training tomorrow!
Thank you for following along for this incredible journey and supporting me as I train and Olivia and I develop more trips and go explore the world by bike!
