  1999: North America

This was an incredible journey across North America and into my soul. Long distance bicycle touring is not for the faint hearted, but for me it was a test of my patience and ability to cope with many challenges that my everyday existence did not provide me. A trip like this can change a person if you are open to change.

"Confess your hidden faults
Approach what you find repulsive
Help those you think you cannot help
Anything you are attached to, let it go
Go to places that scare you"

-from The Places That Scare You, by Pema ChÖdrÖn (Buddhist teacher)

Research - Research I co-authored about endurance exercise on a bicycle
*This research was performed with subjects exercising on stationary bicycles and was published just prior to me setting off on this long bicycle ride. So it seemed appropriate timing for this being published.
