How to Ride Through Any Rock Garden Like a Pro

If you plan to ride on the East Coast, you have to know how to ride through a rock garden. I’ve only been to one location on the entire East Coast that’s devoid of rock gardens. Some places feel like they’re nothing but rock gardens! That’s not to say you won’t encounter rock gardens in […]


How to Navigate a Stream or Water Crossing

Whether you’ll be mixing it up in XC races, or just exploring the vast backcountry trails, you have to know how to ride a stream crossing. If you’re racing, you need to be able to stay on your bike and ride through smoothly, or you’ll waste precious time. If you’re out for an epic ride, […]

I was too busy racing and training, and riding my mountain bike off the tops of boulders, for the thought of climbing up the boulder […]


The Climbing Wall (Pittsburgh)

I’ve made many mistakes over the years. Wearing underwear under my bike shorts, venturing onto a downhill ski resort with my XC skis, and using Olive Garden’s never-ending pasta bowl as a pre-race meal, for example.
