A Philosophical 1st

I’m sick. Slept from 10pm to 8am last night through all the neighbourhood partying. I watched my family leave to go play in the mountains today, I stayed home to rest, and did some journaling and meditation, from which ideas and thoughts emerged and below is my best unpacking of it in to words. It’s [...]

Ruts: RL Newsletter

Cross Training with a Twist

Gone are the days where all I did to train was ride my bike. At a certain stage in my career my body asked for more, thus my yoga journey began, that was nine years ago. But yoga isn’t necessarily enough either, especially for trials riding, and doing so much yoga can also require cross [...]

Back in the day my mentor Robin Coope designed a mountain bike clinic called “A Question of Balance”. Indeed, riding a bike is all about balance; I pushed the boundaries of balance as a career, and did it in [...]
