Lay off me I’m starving!!!

Colorado is like a damn dream compared to the places we’ve ridden through the past couple of days. Don’t get me wrong, I love the barren and striking landscapes of northern Arizona and New Mexico, but as soon as you cross the border in Colorado everything changes. Mountains, yellow leaves, small country roads, and cool little farms to ride by. Even though we got rained on, this was by far my favorite day of riding. (also the day that I figured out that when I eat mexican food I ride like a champion)

So, like any good addict, we found the cheapest motel in town and holed up with our reward food. I tried my best to eat a whole fried chicken and Heath went with salad, ice cream, and one pound of peanut butter M&M’s. We’re slowly admitting to ourselves that we might be the very first people ever to cycle across the country and gain weight at the same time.

  1. I LOVE reading your blog-what a great writer you are, Jeff! Thanks for sharing your adventures with all of us. It takes a special kind of person to do what the two of you are doing so we live vicariously through your writings and photos.

    Let me know if you’d like a GO-PRO camera-I could send it to your shop, if you’d like. Attaches anywhere-bike, arm, head, helmet. Hi Def video.

    Stay safe!

    1. Thanks Laura, I’m glad people are liking the blog. It’s fun to do, but not always easy when you’re beat from riding.

      I’ve been having a hard time filming video with the SLR I brought, so a GO-PRO would be a life saver. Maybe we could find a shop on our route and pick it up there.

      Let me know what you think, and I’ll start looking for places when we get internet again.


    2. OK-I could send it general delivery at a post office if you know a town you’ll be going thru in about a week? Or I could ship it and you could pick it up from a UPS place or maybe a skate shop on the way…are you headed to DM?
      Check out the website when you can and let me know what kind of mount-there’s handlebar mounts, cheststrap, etc.

      By the way, they’re also waterproof, as you head into more fall weather. 🙂
