About Me

I travel with my wife, Diane, our three rescue dogs (plus a fussy cat) around the country in a creaky RV, searching for singletrack nirvana. We love to ride and meet folks everywhere and are the producers of Trail TV, which can be seen here on Singletracks.

Damnation, John, I re-lived the time I ended up in the ER with a broken knee cap and in need of close to 30 stitches to close the "flesh" wound on my knee. Little did I know that a friend of mine had been in there just two days before to get a laceration sewed…
Thanks, Jenny, appreciate your help with this, too.

Another good piece, Jenny, and informative to boot. I was recently in Tucson riding with the amazing folks from Sonoran Desert Mountain Bicyclists and it started raining during our ride. No worries, the trail handled it just fine. But back home, in Kansas City, a rain will shut the trails down for a day or…

Funny stuff right there, Jenny. It's great that we can make fun of ourselves but weird that people are so touchy about this. Taking ourselves too seriously, I see. I wrote one time here on Singletracks about five time national champion Cameron Chambers, one of the nicest guys you're likely to meet on the trail…
I haven't seen the "help me buy a bike" but I did get invited to contribute to one to help some newlyweds take a vacation in the Caribbean. I thought, WTF? I don't say this as a way to suggest I'm anything other than normal or have a pretty common perspective on things. My first…

Terrible article, Greg, and I suggest you: Stop. Right. Now. Go try something different, say, ditch digging. Okay, couldn't resist. But, yeah, if I had a nickel for every person who could do it better than me, hated something I've filmed, written or photographed, I'd have enough money to float away on a stream of…

Good one, John.
The worrisome thing is that someone who carries that much anger and desire for revenge forward over time, especially for such a seemingly innocuous provocation, is certainly a dangerous human being. Someone likely to hurt another person far more seriously the next time.

Hear hear! Turns out those crazy kids on "Dazed and Confused" were right. The journey is the thing, not the destination. And if you follow a straight line doing only what you know and with which you are comfortable, you'll only have eyes on the destination. That means you'll miss all the cool stuff on…
