Adventure , CSR , Haiti
Whether you are a hard-core mountain biker, an adventurous historian, or just someone who likes to explore *truly* off the beaten path, here is an experience that will live with you forever. Take a wild guess at where this picture is from.
Would you have ever guessed Haiti – literally “Land of Mountains.” It is one of the least explored countries in the western hemisphere, and offers thousands of miles of epic trails for hiking, climbing and mountain biking.
Through our partnership with Extreme Bike, we can offer fully inclusive tour packages. Click on facebook.com/MountainBikeHaiti to join Haiti with a new chapter in sustainable adventure tourism.

Failure Club , Personal
The original vision of The Failure Club was similar to a book club, in that a group of no more than 10 friends would gather together on a monthly basis to discuss the trials and tribulations that each person was facing as they embraced their respective ‘failures.’ This model has failed to take flight, and after much personal resistance, we are now launching a new variation in which participants are spread around the US (and possibly overseas), and will be dialing into a monthly conference call. Another key distinction is there are almost no preexisting friendships.
I will use this forum to journal about my personal journey over the course of the year. Aside from the self-doubt and logistical concerns, I am actually quite excited to be creating the first ‘cloud-based’ Failure Club, and am eager to work with these folks on some very cool projects. If you would like to follow some of the projects, check out http://thefailureclub.org as we start tracking progress.

We returned the bikes and thus safely capped off our amazing 195 mile bike expedition through Idaho.
The journey started with a picture next to this car in Idaho Mountain Touring, so it was fitting to get a final picture here, this time relaxing in lounge chairs with a fishing pole and picnic basket. Oh well, maybe next time…

After climbing Galena Pass, this muffin was absolutely incredible. The climb was approx 5 miles and 3500 vertical feet, and offered some of the most sweeping and spectacular views I have encountered on a bike. Certainly the most rewarding summit of this trip. The best part was the 25 mile, 2200 foot descent from here down to Ketchum.
