Holmes Run

Went for a spin on Holmes Run and Dora Kelly Park in Alexandria.


The bike looks and feels great (at least Ari thinks so)


A collection of snapshots I captured during the time I was working on the book; These and many more pictures will grace the pages of Best Rides D.C.

20 years of Mountain Biking the Washington D.C./Baltimore Area

It's hard to believe that we're coning up on the 20th anniversary of my first book, Mountain Biking the Washington, D.C./Baltimore Area, now in it's fourth edition. To commemorate its anniversary I have begun talks with my publisher, Falcon Guides, to give it a much needed re-vamp and update.

Ari’s 2013 Bike Project

Setting of to build Ari a new bike for the upcoming (and few more) seasons.

Time for a new bike

Ever since my daughter was born 8 years ago I have been trying to get her out on the bike with me so that she can enjoy the cycling as much as I do. Sharing in the experience with someone, especially your offspring is invaluable, and seeing how she hones her skills every time we head out makes me prouder and prouder.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

I'm gearing up for 2013 and hoping that the new book hits the shelves in the spring so that it is ready for you when you are ready to hit the trails. I've been quiet the past few weeks since submitting the manuscript, but that does not mean I have not been busy.
