In Honor of My Late Wife, My Biggest Ride of 2021


Below are the three stories that I wrote for pinkbike.com in the years following the passing of my wife Susan in 2016. Susan left us after a 19 year battle with late-stage breast cancer. The outpouring of support over the years from friends, family, and the mountain biking community has been incredible. These stories show my journey in the five years since her passing.
