Well it is up, our new website, bikeandskieventures.com. Sandi & I have often spoke about doing something like this when we were done racing (no were not done), and after brainstorming and picking other peoples minds, this is the end result. It should be a lot of fun to share these experiences with others, spreading our roots even further in the cycling/ outdoor industries, and offering some unique opportunities to others. We will have to see what happens. The website is new, there are some things to be added and cleaned up I am sure, but please give it a look over and shoot us your thoughts and comments.

Enjoy the ride!

Sandi & I headed out to Moab for the weekend for Myia & Mike's wedding, which was at the beautiful Rad Canyon Lodge & Vineyards along the Colorado River just east of Moab. The wedding was very nice, it was great to be in such a relaxing setting for a special occassion, and had a lot of fun talking with everyone, eating some tasty food, and of course bruched up on some dance moves. We had a quaint and cosy cabin we shared with some friends, and we could hear the water rushing over the rapids just a few meters from our balcony.

The next day after a filling brunch, Sandi & I venured into Arches and did an hour 45 min trail run on one of the longer loops, we called it sprint-site seeing. And with camera in hand, ran to all of the arches on the trail and branches off the loop. There were some great viewpoints, obstacles and trails to run on, although I believe the other tourists thought we were nuts...

My new steel IF geared bike is about finished, and I will have some bike porn up on it soon.
