👋🏼 Just your friendly reminder that if you don’t like the state of this country, are uneasy about the fact that our leader is locking up migrant children, and don’t feel like celebrating today, you can do something about it. 🔥🔥 A year from this month, we’ll know who Trump will be up against. Support whoever that will be –– @swingleft Knock on doors with me! It’s the most effective way to help out. Happy to explain more / hold anyone accountable. Let me know ⬇️ - Whenever I post something political a handful of people tell me to “stick to writing.” Which means they not only missed the point of my writing, but of pretty much all of literature. There is no separating politics from art—or our lives. Our politics are present in the stories we tell, hear, honor, believe, and live out.

#Ad // Years ago, I was sitting in my late mother’s closet –– somewhere I often found myself following her death. Along with my pops, I was on a seemingly impossible and ENDLESS mission to sort my way through her stuff so that we could downsize the apartment I grew up in. I came across a lot (my mom was a bit of a hoarder). She kept every single receipt and every single one of my pre-school era masterpieces. There were photos and letters and @risd1877 assignments. Going through it all was one of the hardest things I’ve done. There were pieces from the past but also pieces from the future. A future she wouldn’t be there for but that was largely influenced by her death. 🚵🏼‍♀️ I kept coming across @seatosummitgear from adventures to Fire Island and @teentreks trips. Their stuff is everywhere because they sell basically everything: dry bags, toiletry bags, backpacks, sleeping bags, etc. I remember making a note to myself that someday, I should reach out to them for sponsorship. Someday, I should pursue my dream of biking around the world. This past winter, I finally reached out to the company and Erik and I received a sleeping system sent from heaven. From LA to Santa Fe to Colorado, our Sea to Summit gear turned firehouses, campgrounds, and deserts into five-star hotel rooms. The sleeping pads feel like mattresses and the sleeping bags feel like comforters –– and fold down to fit on our bicycles. --- Our sponsors’ support fuels this dream and that’s something I’ll always be thankful for. Share some love for Sea to Summit! ⤵️ Second photo by @erikdouds @milesofportraits #AdventureCycling #TravelByBike #OneLessCar #WorldByBike #SlowTravel #BikeTouring #HumanPoweredAdventures #OneMorePedal #YouDidNotSleepThere #Explore #Camping #Adventure #BikePacking #WorldByCycling

Let me tell you a story about that one time we missed the ferry. If you watched episode four of @milesofportraits: Alaska, you’ll know that Erik and I miss our ferry from Valdez to Whittier. We sit on a bench outside the terminal and watch the ferry pull away. We sulk but only for a bit. Because then we spot this adorable otter doing summersaults in the water without a care in the world. Call me cheesy but his attitude inspires us to make the most of the day. We head back to the hotel and are treated to a few more nights on the house. (Will we ever learn our lesson?) We go for a hike and then an unloaded bike ride through a lush valley reminiscent of the Andes Mountains. And then… Erik puts the drone up. The one that YOU helped fund through Kickstarter. 🙌🏼 He uses it to capture this piece of gold –– a shot of yours truly riding through a dreamscape. I love it because it perfectly captures the freedom these two wheels give us. A few months later, it’s used in a full-page PEARL iZUMi ad in Outside Magazine. Can we call ourselves #professionals now??! And today, as this LA to Denver trip draws to a close, I walk through Denver International Airport, obsessively checking newsstands for the latest issue. Finally, I find it, I grab it –– with the biggest smile on my face and ask the cashier to take a picture of me. 🎉 Not a bad way to end this adventure.

Share your story!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Two years ago while looking for sponsors, I did just that by DMing @pearlizumiofficial on Instagram. I was welcomed into the brand’s ambassador program, rode Holland with @marialu53, and cycled through a lush Alaska valley in a drone photograph by @erikdouds –– that is now a full page PEARL iZUMi ad in the current issue of @outsidemagazine. (WHAT!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But most importantly, I turned 30 Facebook friends into real-life friends this weekend when the brand treated us to an overnight tour from HQ up into the Colorado Front Range Mountains. I traded my touring bike for a Trek gravel bike I could lift with my finger. I cycled up 4,000 feet and was once again blown away by the many ways the bicycle brings people together. How we’ve all got a reason, a motivator for why we’re doing this, and how beautiful it is that it’s brought us here to what feels like the top of the world. 🏔⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you @joshualawton, @kristingablehouse, @youcanfindmeoutside, and @schwingderhamma for this weekend. Proud to wear these clothes more than ever.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stay tuned to @milesofportraits for a video of the weekend + miles of @pearlizumiofficial ambassador portraits along with our whys. 🚲⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @lauraschmitty⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #HereWeGo #GoCrew #GoYou #GoWild #GoOutsiders #GoNowhere #WorldByBike #AdventureCycling #RideMoreDoMore #TravelByBike #BicycleTouring #OneLessCar #HumanPoweredAdventures #SlowTravel

"We freakin’ biked here." It’s something @elidelsol always said on our bike rides out of NYC. It’s something I say to myself a lot; the fact of it never fails to blow my mind. On the #acaTransAm, I remember crying at my first sight of the snow-capped Rocky Mountains. I remember somewhere in Kansas, looking down at my legs pedaling away and thinking, wow –– I’M DOING IT! There’s nothing like pinching out of a Google Map and seeing how far that blue dot has come. @erikdouds and I have probably spent hours taking jumping shots at state border signs on this trip, our bodies sore from finally switching up our usual workout of pedal after pedal. While most cars whiz by state border signs, us bicyclists… we’ve got traditions. Steve Saunders, an adventure cyclist recently featured on @milesofportraits ALWAYS stops at state signs to put a sticker on his bike and sip some tea. 😂 On jimmyandjanie.com, @janieseestheworld talks about how she races her husband across each one. That’s because every state sign is a celebration of what this body is capable of. 🔥 #ForJustTen, celebrate milestones like these by becoming a member of the @milesofportraits trail family.

100 miles is a long way. But 10 isn’t. A pizza cutter was invented because it’s so much easier to eat a piece slice by slice than to attempt the whole pie. I’ve tried.

Every car has a rearview mirror... so should every bicycle. 👀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I got a lot of mail about my @qz pool noodle article (55,000 Facebook shares will do that 😮).

Lesson learned –– don’t camp next to a full trash can. In Globe, AZ, we stay in an RV park smack dab in the middle of town. Their cyclist camping section happens to be situated next to a smelly trash can. Somehow, it occurs to neither of us that this might be an issue. At 1am, I hear Erik clinging his fork against his steel cup. “There seems to be a pack of something getting at our food.” We cling, clap, throw shoes, and finally move our tents across the park. We continue to cling and clap from a distance. They keep barking. Are they wild cats? Coyotes? Mountain lions? We barely sleep that night, gripped by fear. And then I see a shadow of what looks like a lone pig run across the field. I must be hallucinating. I somehow manage to fall asleep for 30 minutes and when dawn breaks, I unzip my tent to check the picnic table where I had stupidly left our pantry bag. The trash is tipped over, overflowing. And ALL of our food has been devoured –– every single thing but the mustard container. I walk back to my tent and see a pack of peccary –– what I later learn are pig-looking members of the rodent family –– scurry across the campground. Always feared bears. Never had a bear problem. But it was a pack of wild pigs that ate all of our food. 😂🙈 #ShitHappens #WorldByBike #AdventureCycling #TravelByBike #BicycleTouring #OneLessCar #HumanPoweredAdventures #SlowTravel

Fun fact: I cycled across America twice sans clip-ins. Sometimes, you just want to use what you’ve got in your closet. 🤷🏼 But then I put on clip-in shoes and I was like… what the hell was I doing this WHOLE TIME!? Love my @pearlizumiofficial X-Alp Elevate kicks because I can bike AND hike in them. When I clip in, I feel like I’m one with the bike. - Brandi, my Warmshowers host here in Salida, CO is currently gearing up to race the #TourDivide, a famous self-supported race along the Continental Divide from Canada to Mexico. She happens to be bringing the same shoes because there are parts of the Divide where you have to carry your bike up rock formations. 💪🏼 - Everything at pearlizumi.com is 25% through Memorial Day. Get out there!! - Thank you always to @pearlizumiofficial for supporting us. And be sure to dot-watch the Tour Divide this year. I’ll be rooting for Brandi Blade, Janie Hayes, Lael Wilcox, and Evan Deutsch. These people are crazy in the best kind of way. 😜 - tourdivide.org - 📸: @erikdouds - #Ad #RideMoreDoMore #GoYou #AdventureCycling #TravelByBike #OneLessCar #WorldByBike #SlowTravel #BicycleTouring

#ForJustTen, you can fuel our ride. ⛽️ I love cycling because there’s no need for gas –– just food and lots of it.

Last night, I sobbed on the subway. - Don’t worry, though. They were happy tears. They were joyful, ecstatic, can’t-contain-myself, holy-shit-somebody-please-pinch-me tears. Why? - BECAUSE ERIK AND I GOT THE APRIL COVER OF ADVENTURE CYCLIST MAGAZINE! - With photography by @erikdouds and myself, I wrote an article for @adventurecycling’s print magazine that tells the story of our Alaska bike trip through the @dexcom blood sugar graphs we use to manage our diabetes. - This March, you can find me on the cover of Adventure Cyclist Magazine… in Erik’s photo of me taking a shot of insulin in the middle of Denali National Park. 🙈 I’m absolutely over the moon that we’re able to spread so much awareness about this often misunderstood condition. - Hard work.

If you can’t tell, @milesofportraits has kind of been my life for the past year. All this month, @erikdouds and I have been jumping from REI to REI, telling the story of where our bicycles have taken us –– at the very store where they came from. It’s been an honor to laugh and cry with a full house of new and old friends, watching our adventure play out on the big screen. - Yesterday, we brought it home to the REI flagship store in NYC. As I spoke about my mother’s death and how it’s brought me here, I watched eyes fill with water. - I grew up with these two ⤴️ and seeing their faces in the front row meant just about everything. 💗 - We’ve got one more stop on this Northeast leg of the #TourDeREI!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I say... this picture is worth four thousand miles. 🙃 - On a chilly night in May of 2017, the #TransAmFam made tacos under the Wytheville, VA Town Park vestibule. Mark lead a bedtime yoga session where we met Maggie for the first and last time on the trip. We leapfrogged across America with Mark but Maggie ended up turning off the TransAm towards Tennessee. - A few nights ago, we held our third @milesofportraits @rei talk at the store in Reading, MA. Mark drove down from New Hampshire and Maggie up from Rhode Island — where she had already seen our first talk — so that we could all be together for literally 20 minutes. - The things is, we barely spoke with Maggie in that Virginia park. There’s something about the bike that brings us together. It’s hard to explain but bicycle touring is like this secret society that’s open to every walk of life. And all you need to get in is a 🚲. - - - Shout-out to trail fam for making the hike. 💗 (Talking to you, @kamerge). - When people ask us why, we point to you. - milesofportraits.com/events - - - #TourDeREI #TrailFam #MilesOfPortraits #KindnessWins #HomeIsWhereTheBikeIs #WorldByBike #AdventureCycling #TravelByBike #BicycleTouring #OneLessCar #HumanPoweredAdventures #SlowTravel #Wanderlust #iLikeToRideMyBicycle #OptOutside @aspire_eyewear @revo @pearlizumiofficial @biolite

“Yeah, moms are cool.” - Those were the words Judy Maloney said to me as she hugged me after our first #TourDeREI talk. Judy was my @risd1877 freshman year 2D professor. A few weeks ago, I emailed her inviting her to the event. - "I'm not sure if you remember me since it's been a whopping eight years since I was in your 2D foundation class.” - She remembered me and especially the artist book I created in her class that represented the progression of the Union Pacific Railroad. She remembered the way I discovered a way to enable the pages to flip on their own by pulling a tab. - My mom was so proud of that book I made. A fellow RISD alum, she was obsessed with paper folding and book making. In the last @milesofportraits: Alaska episode, I talk about how she was an explorer in so many ways. - In our talks, I always bring it back to my mama and the way, as @thedinnerparty puts it, sometimes being with death gets us figuring out what makes us most come alive. - Judy's face was one of the many familiar ones I saw at our first @rei talk in Rhode Island this past Wednesday. We gave it in the back warehouse under hanging kayaks. - Thank you @rei for hosting us and giving us the ideal space to tell our story. - - - We’ve got plenty more talks where that came from!

Each @milesofportraits: Alaska episode begins with a quote from a cyclist we've met on the road. This one comes from Jordan Laiche ( @jmoneyflip) who was part of the @beyondtype1 #BikeBeyond team. Last year, a group 20 riders living with type 1 diabetes rode their bikes across America to bust a bunch of stigmas. 💥 - We chose this quote to start off episode 4 because it speaks not only to the power of T1Ds on bikes, but also to the ways these two wheels brings us together and the liberation that comes from riding our bicycles really, really far. - Click that link in @erikdouds’ bio to watch Miles of Portraits: Alaska Episode 4: Otter Days. 🌊 And don’t forget to leave a comment. :) - Read more about Bike Beyond and watch the trailer at beyondtype1.org/bike-beyond - - #MilesOfPortraits #KindnessWins #HomeIsWhereTheBikeIs #WorldByBike #AdventureCycling #BikeWander #TravelByBike #BicycleTouring #OneLessCar #HumanPoweredAdventures #SlowTravel #Wanderlust #iLikeToRideMyBicycle #T1D #BeyondType1 #OptOutside @aspire_eyewear @revo @pearlizumiofficial @biolite @explorethousand @ortlieb_waterproof @arcteryx @arcteryxsoho @beyondtype1 @adventurecycling #FavoriteQuotes #QuoteOfTheDay

At a public speaking class my dad took years ago, the instructor began the workshop with an alarming stat –– according to several surveys, people fear public speaking more than they fear death. 😵 - One of my New Year’s resolutions is to confront this common fear. And what better way to do that than to line up a bunch of @rei screenings + talks about @milesofportraits?! - @erikdouds and I will be doing a #TourDeREI this January at store locations in and around Rhode Island, Boston, NYC, D.C., plus more locations TBA. - 🚨 Spots are already filling up so be sure to register by clicking “get tickets” on my profile. - There are two ticket options: FREE or the $45 ticket which includes a signed two-pack of Miles of Portraits magazines, a poster, plus the knowledge that you’re helping fund the crazy ideas of these two dreamers. 🌈 - Either way, your presence means everything. 💚 - - - At several events we’ll be raffling off items from our sponsors, @pearlizumiofficial, @biolite, @explorethousand, @ortlieb_waterproof, and @arcteryx. - - - #MilesOfPortraits #KindnessWins #HomeIsWhereTheBikeIs #WorldByBike #AdventureCycling #BikeWander #TravelByBike #BicycleTouring #OneLessCar #HumanPoweredAdventures #SlowTravel #Wanderlust #Alaska #iLikeToRideMyBicycle #T1D #BeyondType1 #OptOutside @aspire_eyewear @revo @beyondtype1 @adventurecycling @arcteryxsoho #ThingsToDoInNYC #ThingsToDoInNJ #ThingsToDoInBoston #ThingsToDoInDC #ThingsToDoInProvidence #ThingsToDoInRI

A few days ago, I was sitting at the arrivals section of Sea-Tac Airport, under the hanging vintage planes. I was waiting for my dad to arrive so we could celebrate his 70th birthday in the most magical place. - I opened my computer and found an automated email from Kickstarter telling me that WE MADE OUR $6000 GOAL! - MOMENTS later, my dad walked in. I hugged him tight –– we’ve got a lot of things to celebrate. :) - We spent his time in the PNW exploring Olympic National Park, taking a tour of the Boeing Factory, diner hopping, and retracing parts of my past bike routes. What a relief it was not to have to worry about reaching our goal during our little celebration. - Not only did we reach our goal, but by the campaign’s end, we surpassed it by 25%. WHAT!?? - 116 backers pledged $7,426 to help bring this project to life. - It’s pretty liberating to put your crazy idea out there and have your 🌎 embrace it. - Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you - - - #MilesOfPortraits #MakePortraits #Faces #Portraits #HomeIsWhereTheBikeIs #WorldByBike #AdventureCycling #BikeWander #TravelByBike #PedalPower #BicycleTouring #iLikeToRideMyBicycle #OneLessCar #HumanPoweredAdventures #SlowTravel #Wanderlust #DreamsDoComeTrue #Kickstarter #Funded #PinchMe

This is it. - Today is the LAST day of our Kickstarter. You can pledge until 11:59 pm EST. - My Abuela, my mom’s mom who passed away a couple years ago, was one of the most outgoing people I’ve ever known. Whenever I would run errands with her and she got too tired to keep walking, she’d sit on a bench and wait for me. After five or ten minutes, I’d come back from grabbing some groceries and find that she had made friends with the person sitting next to her. Every single time. They’d invite her to their beach house in Aruba or in one case, buy her a wheel of cheese from Duty Free. - She was an expert at making friends. It was one of my favorite things about her. Along with my mom, she inspired me to TALK to more people. Because everyone’s got a story. - I was thinking about how the bench to my Abuela is what the bicycle is to me. - As my friend Kate described better than I could, the bicycle is a bridge that connects us with people of all walks of life. The bicycle, especially one that’s loaded with panniers, is the ultimate conversation starter. It's a vehicle that most of us have access to and is powered by our own two legs. There’s something about riding one that causes complete strangers to tell you their life story. - Thank you to everyone who pitched in. And if you haven’t pledged yet, there’s no time like ~right now~ to do so. :) - You have until 11:59 PM EST. - milesofportraits.com/kickstarter - - - #MilesOfPortraits #MakePortraits #Faces #Portraits #HomeIsWhereTheBikeIs #WorldByBike #AdventureCycling #BikeWander #TravelByBike #PedalPower #BicycleTouring #iLikeToRideMyBicycle #OneLessCar #HumanPoweredAdventures #SlowTravel #Wanderlust #LastDay #Abuela #FinalStretch #HomeStretch #Kickstarter
