Hello everyone. It has been a while since I updated but I am working to clean up any dead links and update the site. If you look to your right you'll see a drop down list of posts from 2007, these web articles are all from a travel guide I self-published and chose to post here instead.
It all started in 2000 when I had the rare chance to make a Tour with a friend and co-worker from bike.com, a now defunct web business.
My very first stage was the mighty Ventoux on a day where Marco Pantani was gifted a stage. The wind howled and we found a few friends from the States to huddle up and picnic with on the rocky moonscape on a patch blocked from the wind.
Over the next few years I had friend after friend ask for travel help and I took jobs writing and guiding for my friend Brian Rounds of Velo Echappe International Travel. I am forever grateful that he took a leap and hired me. The experience I gained with him is translated HERE for sure.
In addition to Brian's trips I got some fantastic chances to travel with friends staying in Gite's and budget lodging in the French countryside. We'd plan trips, ride in the morning, come home cook, relax at night and do it all again the next day. No luxury on these trips, ample use of public transportation, immersion in the culture and great riding camps in the Vercors, Alps, Pyrenees, Provence and so many more. I hope these words help plan an adventure where you find the joy and passion for travel that I have found. Bonne journée....
