LIFE ON AND OFF THE BIKE AT THE 46TH PARALLEL

I was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota and still call it home.  I have always had a passion for competition and seeking my own extremes.  Although I’ve participated in
many sports my true love lies in the woods.  Out in the

wild is where I can clear my head, where I find my peace,

and I prefer getting there by bike.

Living a Life Outside

As a kid I grew up outside no matter what the season, no matter what the temperature. My Dad always said, "Weather is nothing, as long as you’re dressed for it". I never stressed about the weather. In fact, I never really even thought about it, I just let the door slam behind me.
