We caught up with Russell and Kalan to talk about their 240 mile and 20K of climbing in a single day’s ride. As it turns out, we aren’t the only ones Strava-stalking. I was on my Thursday run with my buddy Aaron Monroe and I started to tell him about these two guys who did a 240 mile single day ride – he replied “you interviewed Kalan Beisel?” For those of you who live in the front-range of Colorado, you’ll find this route absolutely fascinating (and mind boggling). For those of you not in the area, don’t worry, we’ve got a lot of interesting information that you can apply to your riding or perhaps inspire you do an epic ride where you live! Read more

After my near death fear subsided, I console myself by thinking how I will never forget this experience, the sounds, smells, and nail-biting fear, good or bad. These are those rare moments that push you out of your comfort zone, stimulate your senses and send your adrenaline to unknown heights; the moments that enrich your life and make traveling and seeing the world so invaluable.
