Livin’ the dream!
For a long time I’ve thought, “How awesome would it be if we could just ride our bikes in really cool places all the time.” -The coveted life of the pro rider. However, turns out there are other paths to this goal.
Sometimes, when you visualize something in your mind, you can make it happen. Inga and I are full-fledged believers in this philosophy now. We used it to find each other, and we always thought, “How awesome would it be if we could just ride our bikes in really cool places all the time?”
I’m happy to announce that this is exactly what Inga and I are about to do. We figured out a way to live our dream lifestyle, as we are now preparing our departure from San Francisco to pursue a life of adventure, and the coolest job ever. It’s official- For 2009 Inga and I are the new IMBA/ Subaru Trail Care Crew! We will be one of two teams of trail experts that will travel year-round throughout North America and beyond, leading trailwork sessions, meeting with land managers, and working with IMBA-affiliated clubs and members to improve mountain biking opportunities. The Trail Care Crew experts (us) will also lead a series of popular two-day IMBA Trailbuilding Schools.
We will first be heading to IMBA headquarters for intense trail building training, and once that is complete, we will be handed the keys to a brand new Subaru, and two Gary Fisher Roscoe all mountain bikes.
For the next 30 days we’ll be in the process of tying up all our loose ends. Stay tuned to hear more, as we plan to document our adventures here, as well as on the IMBA TCC Blog.
