  • Stopped at Joshua Tree last night before heading back to our temporary sticks and bricks. Felt a little weird to store the trailer again and move out. This weekend warrior thing is hard work! 📷: @randycharrette
  • We’re learning how to be parents of a competitive athlete. Our #1 goal is that our kids gain a lifelong love of riding bikes and learn about self-confidence, grit, risk-taking, goal-setting, and teamwork while riding.
•
Riding and racing bikes is a passion for @kbikesurf and we fully support him. Making detours, connecting him with opportunities, encouraging him, and buying his gear is part of that support. After that, our role is to show up and have fun running around the course cheering.
•
We don’t remind him of his goals, convince him to get up at 5am, manage his Instagram account, or try to light a fire when it’s not there. He owns his journey and we’re along for the ride -providing some direction but not the map. That’s not always easy for me but I’m learning and biting my tongue when needed.
•
He did his first big national level road stage race this weekend. 3 days of racing including a time trial, road race, and crit. He learned a lot, met new people, received great advice from team directors, and had loads of fun.
•
He made the GC podium by 2 hundredths of a second. You can’t teach the power of never giving up better than that.
•
How do you handle competitive sports in your family? Would love to hear what works for others. #juniorcycling #VOS2018 #raisingboys #raisingriders #roadbikeracing
  • We’ve been back in the camper for a week and we still love it! Nothing like the RV life where your home is always with you, trails out the front door, and prime sunset viewing every night. 🌅🚴🌵
  • “I feel that the universe is full of glorious energy, that the energy tends to take pattern and shape, and that the ultimate character of things is comely and good. I am perfectly aware that I say this in the teeth of all sorts of contrary evidence, and that I must be basing it partly on temperament and partly on faith, but that’s my attitude.” - - Richard Wilbur, Poet Laureate

Life is a journey with many ups and downs. Using my miles as meditation helps me see and understand a bigger picture. #resilient #movementmeditation #mountainbikelife #mindfulnessmatters #everydayresilience
  • Last night @kbikesurf shot this photo and used Lightroom to edit. I asked him if I could use it and he said “I’ll sell it to you for $10.” Smart kid.

  • Honestly a lot of times my motivation to ride comes from needing some peace and quiet. Late this afternoon I rode 15 miles out into the desert not seeing anything but coyotes, 🐰 ,🌵and this skeleton drinking a beer. It was a perfect way to end the day. #mtbmom #arizonamtb #desertmtb #gojuliana #movementmeditation
  • Once in awhile it’s good to turn yourself inside out and then reflect on how fun it was with cocktails after. 2nd place in Expert Masters Women at the Havasu Havoc. 💪 ladies out there! 📷: @roaditup
