Trek Travel Role:

Guide

My Favorite Ride:

On a 3-month ride through Patagonia, my best ride was crossing "the back way" from Villa O’Higgins, Chile to El Chalten, Argentina. One magnificent day across the Southern Andes pedaling dirt roads, singletrack, and two boat rides with Monte Fitz Roy in sight the whole time. Finished up with caprese empanadas, a cold beer, and my best friend from the US waiting for me for a week of trekking.

My Rides:

Marin Pine Mountain, Cinelli Hobootleg, and hopefully soon a Trek Checkpoint
