2005 Ride

2005: 2000 mile ride

Rode the Rocky Mountains from Trego, Montana to Albuquerque, New Mexico… Hauled home

The reasons for swinging into the saddle in 2005 for my first ride seem vague now. It seems impossible that I even made it! I simply did not know what I was getting myself into, I rode on a wave of ignorance. I cried the day I left and cried for weeks until fatigue finally broke the fear into tiny digestible pieces. I eventually found a life that tantalized and called to me, a life that suited me, I remember thinking “how will I ever return to a normal life?” – Well I guess I never did.
