syd & macky - mountain bike racing
We’re Syd and Macky. We race bikes professionally. We live in a van. And we travel a lot — both for bike races and also sometimes just to see the world.
All that sounds glamorous, but often it’s quite the opposite. Think long nights driving around looking for a campsite. Lost baggage. Running out of money. Breakdowns. A lot of blood, sweat, tears, love and logistics is going on behind the scenes. In many ways, that effort is what makes this lifestyle rewarding. But it’s also the part that nobody sees.
For years, we’ve been getting “the question” — how do you do it? How do you do what you do? What’s the big secret?
Well, there is no big secret beyond determination, passion, and persistence. But there are a lot of small secrets, and that’s what we’ll be sharing here.
genevieve & douglass - bicycle touring
We're genevieve and Douglass. Douglass likes to bicycle, and genevieve loves to travel. One thing led to another, and we decided to travel by bicycle across the US and around Europe—for now.
We're both in our late twenties, and we spent all our married life in Salt Lake City, Utah, where Douglass is originally from (genevieve hails from San Luis Obispo, California). We're excited to explore our country and the world together.
