Tayler Wiles Coast Adventure

This year was the 5th edition of our annual adventure along California's beautiful coast!  Each year we have done a slightly different rendition; from 3 days to 7 days, from Eureka to San Luis Obispo, and one time we decided to go all out and start in Portland, Oregon.  You can see every detail to completely recreate any of these adventures on my website including precise routes, food stops, and lodging for each trip to date.  This year our overall plan was to ride from Trinidad to San Luis Obispo over six days.  This was a lofty goal given both the distances of each day and the unpredictable past, present, and future weather forecast for California.  The buckets of rain that have been falling on Californians everywhere have done a number on the roads, and we knew going into this adventure that this could create a few obstacles.  But we were determined to try, so on the 13th of February we rented a mini van and headed North for Trinidad!

Colombia Team Camp Adventure

In the cycling world, there is an annual tradition that generally occurs sometime between the end of one season and the beginning of the next.  This event can come in many forms but typically involves warm weather, new teammates, lots of bright shiny equipment, and many hours in the saddle.  This crazy tradition is known as “team camp”, and this year I got to spend camp in the beautiful country of Colombia.  For me this team camp was a bit of a new beginning as I transition from Orica AIS in 2016 to UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling team in 2017.  I went into camp without a clue as to what to expect from both the team and Colombia but I was looking forward to the new adventure.
