A Guest Post for Bicycling Magazine: Chocolate Cake and Bourbon
Last week, Bicycling Magazine invited me to write a guest post for Bill Strickland’s blog, “The Selection”. The resulting piece draws on some of my experiences touring in the Anza-Borrego Desert and ruminates on the way that food goes from being just “fuel” to taking on a much more important meaning when camping and pedaling all day by yourself.
Other writing about this trip recently appeared on the Rapha blog. If you missed it, I welcome you to check out this piece about the subtle nuances and contrasts of touring vs. racing.
I’m in New York wrapping up a great trip that included a little bit of partying balanced by a huge load of work. (Tip: Always follow 23 back-to-back micromeetings with at least 3 glasses of very good Malbec.)
All this to say, I’m not dead! Just gathering steam. Quietly.
PS: I also really enjoyed Fat Cyclist’s guest post on Bill’s blog, as well as Judi LoPresti’s post called “Cycling in a Heroin State of Mind“. Jeremy Powers also has a great post about what it takes to reach your goals.
