I had a BLAST! There’s much more coverage coming here on the site from my stay in Minneapolis, but I had to post this one up first. Honestly, I couldn’t think of a better photo to say adieu!
Until next time (when the snow melts)!
Yesterday was the first full day in Minneapolis. I’m here for the All-City Championships, along with Kyle from Tracko. We’re both crashing at Jeff from All-City’s house and that means we fall into his routine. His food, his rides, his spots and of course, his house. When you’re staying with someone like Jeff, expect a good time. Check out some narrated photos in the Gallery!
… and this is playing in the background. Check out some of Andrew Norton’s photographer series videos here.
I had to share this:
“She-Devils PGH is a camp-tastic, genre-defying caper, about an all-female bicycle gang that cruise the streets of PIttsburgh, regulating the safety of their fellow female riders.
This short film begins following a typical day-in-the-life of the group, but takes a strange turn when the ladies witness a rogue car weaving along the road. They soon discover the car is inhabited by alien lifeforms and must band together to stop an impending alien attack.
Help support us in getting this film made through our Kickstarter campaign.”
Today is my last full day in NYC. This trip, unlike previous visits, I spent a majority of my days walking around the city, even in the rain. While I’ve visited a few shops and seen some friends, to me, New York is just as engaging by foot as it is by bike. Check out a series of narrated photos in this Friday afternoon Gallery!

I’ve been meaning to post this photo of Lauren and I that Jacob took a few weeks back in Austin. He really captured that magical moment of riding around town with your lady.
Oh and that #LightBro!
Without New York City, I wouldn’t be who I am today and quite possibly, this site wouldn’t even exist. The people here are like family and while I may be detached from their day to day lives, I still always roll through for a quick visit when I’m in town. Lauren and I arrived late Sunday, so yesterday was our first day in town.
I swung by a few spots in Brooklyn after my friend Harry and I took a morning spin around Central Park. Later, day turned into night and I turned to some of my old digs to meet up with some old friends. Beer, bros and bikes. Just like the Brooklyn I left three years ago.
Most of these photos are quick shots, or portraits but all came from the Sony RX100… Check out some narrated photos in the Gallery!
If anyone can tell you about traveling on an airplane with a bike, it’s me. I spend just about every other week flying with my bike, all over the country and the world. In doing so, I’ve established a routine that works without issue but it takes a little bit of planning before you even begin to pack.
Check out more below.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been really stressed out. The Brovet helped clear my mind and allowed me some solitude to figure out where my life was headed. Making this kind of decision is easy, it’s the planning that’s the hardest part.
After three years of dating this woman, I finally made the move and bought her a ring. This is the ring for a girl who refuses to wear diamonds. A 1.5 karat Mine Cut Brilliant diamond, in a hand-carved setting that dates from approximately 1870. It’s one of the rarest stones the seller has seen and let me tell you, she loves it.
So what does this mean for the site? Nothing! Expect the same radness and yes, the occasional sappiness as you’ve come to expect over the years… I’m just incredibly happy right now.
I’m still in Vermont but I’ll be in NYC next week!
July has been a busy month for me. When I wasn’t on the road, I was out and about here in Austin with my Mamiya 7ii shooting portraits and other randomness. This set is heavily focused on the 4th of July party at Yellow Jacket Social Club but also includes a few bike portraits. I hope you enjoy!
