Not much about bikes but still the best!!!
Not that we ever left, but I have to admit that our game has slipped a bit the last few years or so. I’ve been writing less on the blog and new shirts and such have become less frequent. I’m happy to report that with the new website and a bit of perspective that’s all going to change.
And checkout all the new shit to BUY!
good on you Jedidiah Jenkins!
If you need conversation material at parties, I suggest planning a seven thousand mile bike ride. It gives you the ability to talk to anybody. It’s a story that spreads on its own. People will just walk right up to you and ask, “Is it true? Holy shit.”
I just turned 30, and I’ve decided to use this year to radically shape the rest of my life. I am about to leave my job and ride a bicycle for seventeen months, from Oregon to Patagonia. The need to do it (and it really felt like a need) hit me about three years ago when I read a quote from famed naturalist John Muir.
“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.”
