My training schedule has officially started for #ScottsDeathRide (details here...) – I'm partway through week #2 as I write this. One thing I'm already loving is visiting with friends while riding bikes together. The other day I spent some quality time in the saddle with Sara and we talked about why she rides. It's a powerful story full of inspiration – I think you'll like … [Read more...] about #ScottsDeathRide – Sara and why she rides
As I really get rolling in my training plan for #ScottsDeathRide (details here...), I want to bring you up to speed on the cool rides, people, and stories that take place. Not long ago, I connected with my friend George "(the original) Ninjabetic" Simmons for a great Father's Day ride. Take a look at this quick video: George is awesome, and it was a blast … [Read more...] about #ScottsDeathRide – Father’s Day ride with George
A few months back, my friend Erik Douds talked me into this crazy adventure of cycling 100 miles through DEATH VALLEY to benefit JDRF. Henceforth affectionately known as #ScottsDeathRide – a.k.a. JDRF Death Valley 2019 Ride to Cure Diabetes! (don't worry, I'm not going to die) Join us on our mission to raise $8,000 in support of JDRF while riding our bikes 100 miles in … [Read more...] about #ScottsDeathRide – What in the world?

I know you guys are probably getting terribly sick of me and this contest stuff, but I'm desperate, so I'm making one last push. This push has a story though. I hope it is enough of a story to collect three clicks from you (and your friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances) in the next 29 hours. My home office is one of the best I've ever had. The windows look out … [Read more...] about 29 hours for 3 Clicks – Because I Miss my Bike
One week ago today I rode my bicycle for 102 miles. I still can't believe I did it. I trained for 18 weeks with TeamWILD. Each week of training brought hours and hours on the bike. I pedaled inside, I pedaled outside. I pedaled in the cold, I pedaled in the heat. I pedaled in the rain, I pedaled in the sun. Each week of training brought me closer to the big … [Read more...] about Pedaling in my Sleep: 102-Mile Ride
I am riding 100 miles (!!) in the 2012 Tour de Cure ride for the ADA in June (June 2, 2012). I must be crazy. More than a few things have come together to make this happen, and I'm excited about all of it! This will be the third year for me to ride with The Pancremaniacs, our Tour de Cure team that is more than 30 strong so far (and still recruiting - want to ride with … [Read more...] about Scott – On His Bike a LOT This Spring!
Have you ever gotten yourself into something you weren't quite sure you could do? I got myself very familiar with that feeling this Spring. When we finished the 25-mile Tour de Cure route last year I wasn't ready to be finished. I wanted more. So for the 2011 ride we signed up for the 45-mile course. The weather here this "Spring" (note the quotation marks...) was … [Read more...] about I Did It! Tour de Cure!

Summer of 2009. Allison came to town and we had a DOC meet-up out at the Mall of America. That was the first time I met Heather (a.k.a "Auntly H") who blogs at "Beyond Your Peripheral Vision". Heather talked about her recent ADA Tour de Cure, and it sounded like a blast. So I told her I'd ride with her team in 2010. With her help, I got back on my bike after a … [Read more...] about Help Scott Ride the 2011 ADA Tour de Cure!
