#DadBod on the HD5

The DNR just reopened some of my local trails and I was stoked to get back out there! I hadn’t been out on my HD5 for awhile so I decided  to take it for a run on #Dadbod. I was happy to see some folks out there enjoying it! Check out Dad Bod on trail…

Sunrise ride on Galby!

I got in a muddy ride over Galbraith early the other morning before the family woke up and I was on #dadduty for the rest of the day. It’s GREAT to have my local trails so close by during quarantine times.

Can the Occam hang on an old favorite?!

Learn the CUTTY

I don’t do cutties a whole lot, but I do occasionally employ them. Honestly, I think we could dedicate another entire video to cutties! But for now, here’s How To Cutty:

What happened to Trust?

  Over the past couple weeks I’ve had a bunch of comments asking about what I’m going to do now that Trust is suspending operations.  I had a contract with Trust, they held up their end of the bargain, and I feel like I upheld my end.  Now that they are halting operations, I won’t get…
