FreeHub Magazine | Spring 2014

on Tuesday, April 22, 2014


This journey will forever live in my mind as one of the best and weirdest trips of my life. It all started with an idea to mt. bike in Mexico with Jamie Goldman and Carson Storch. That idea became reality when we started speaking with IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) rep Ricardo Ganem. Next thing we know we are on a plane with multiple bike boxes in hand, heading for Real de Catorce, Mexico. At the time we knew nothing about the town other than it was mountainous with streets made of cobblestone. We basically pointed at a map and went. Here is the FreeHub Magazine article about our venture to inland Mexico.

A huge thanks goes out to the Central Bike Park for making this trip become a reality. Read more about the park on the IMBA page (here).
