Our next stop on the traveling road tour was El Paso, Texas. At this point the IMBA crews split off and headed their separate ways. Kelly and Collins headed back east, while Inga and myself were to make our way towards the Pacific, through the southwest.
After our job in Payson, Arizona, the two Trail Care Crews traveled to Carlsbad, New Mexico. On the way south we stopped in Tucson to ride with some friends.

We’ve been learning the ways of the road, and adopted the lifestyle that comes with a life on the road. Every week we are […]
We’ve now been in Boulder for over two weeks and are about to finally head on the road. Our first week began with a meet and greet with the office staff here at IMBA, the International Mountain Bicycling Association. We learned quite a bit, and are a bit overwhelmed even with the sheer amount of […]
It has been a unpleasant couple of weeks, filled with much more drama than was necessary, but we have finally wrapped up our lives in San Francisco. Stuffing the contents of my life into a 5×8 foot box in a warehouse was considerably more difficult than I had expected. Even after getting rid of three […]
