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’re in Monterey celebrating the official kick off of the 09 cycling season here at the Sea Otter Classic. It’s a good time, as it is every year, with all the newest & latest cool gear on display and all the cycling elite are out and about. Inga and I have been working at the […]
We had first become aware of the freeriding in New Mexico through David Fibley of Southwest Freeride. We weren’t sure what to expect, but after our experience in El Paso with the Roughriders, we realized how much incredible terrain the southwest had to offer. We weren’t sure we would be able to make it up […]
Life on the road can be a bit hectic. Trying to balance bike advocacy with having a personal life, as well as trying to maintain a semblance of physical fitness has been a challenge, but after a few months of living on the road, we’re actually managing to get into a sort of non-routine-routine.

When living as a road based nomad, it is always good to find a place to check out for a bit and hide. Even better if it’s known for gorgeous scenery and legendary trails. After a Subaru/ IMBA Trail Care Crew visit to Phoenix, we choose to make Sedona, Arizona as the place to make […]
It’s never been more important to support IMBA, especially if you live in California. With the recent enforcement/ bike ban of the popular UCSC trails in Santa Cruz, as well as the impending CA State Parks Wilderness Bill, there is a serious threat for mountain bikers and trails statewide, and we need everyone to register […]
We’ve been living on the on the road for a while now. Here’s summary of where we have been, and here is an account of the missions the Subaru/ IMBA Trail Care Crews have accomplished to date:
There is nothing better than swinging a leg over a new bike and feeling right at home. That is exactly the feeling I had astride the new Session 88. The Session has been on my radar since Trek Brand Manager Michael Browne showed us the new Session models at Sea Otter last year. Trek knew […]
It’s official, we’re on the road! We’ve been traveling since the beginning of the year with the senior crew, Kelly and Collins Bishop, and have hardened up into seasoned professional travelers. 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 […]
One of our favorite spots to ride in the city of Boulder was amazingly enough, at a bike shop. A lot of shops have test ride areas where one can “try before you buy”. However, this is one shop that took that concept and blew it up! It isn’t often you see a shop that […]
During IMBA’s staff week, we had the chance to sit down with Pete Webber, IMBA Trail Specialist , and learn more about the Valmont Bike Park. He pulled out the original blue prints and shared the scoop on this incredible project. For those uninformed of the scope of the project, the Valmont Bike Park is […]
