Dreaming of my next great adventure

March 10, 2015

It’s been almost 6 months since I last was on tour. As I sit here writing and look out the window, I reminisce about the great week I had on the Sierra Sampler with a fantastic group. Here in Missoula, winter has come and gone, and on my daily commute, I think about where my travels will take me next.

Exploring the South Tufas at Mono Lake on the Sierra Sampler Tour in 2014.

When I look for a little break, I catch myself browsing our tours page looking for inspiration, and then spend hours planning out the logistics of joining up with multiple rides. I catch myself daydreaming about riding through the Red Rocks on Cycle Utah, then catching a plane and meandering through the Adirondacks of New York. Or maybe I’ll skip to the Erie Canal with my family for a great tour with kids, and then take a Relaxed trip in Southern Ohio.

Planning my next big adventure!

For now, it’s all dreams, but I know I better pull the trigger soon – Trips are filling fast! For now, I’m sticking to the daily grind, ready to take my new office buddy for his first tour!

It looks like we want to go different directions...
