Regular Joe’s Summertime Report

joe_distHi all,

I hope everyone’s summer is off to an amazing start! I was enjoying some great weather and riding in Vancouver and Whistler, it was nice to get some shred time at home in after my Bolivia trip. I got a bunch of north shore pedaling in, and some sweet DH days on the Shore and in the always fun Whistler Bike park.

I am pinned now for the rest of the summer, not much time at home for me now!

I just finished a week-long bike camp in Calgary, at the Canada Olympic Park, a Kona Groove-Approved bike park. It was fun, I had 10 groms that were really pumped to ride, and they were also keen to learn some new stuff. It was also Stampede week in Calgary, and I got to partake in some of the festivities. Highlights were a BBQ at a friends house, complete with a country band, and watching chuck wagon races at the fairgrounds, which were insane.

I am heading to Whistler now, to coach three weeks of the Summer Gravity Camps. After Whistler, I fly straight to Switzerland to run DH trips there for Big Mountain Bike Adventures. I will be in Switzerland for most of August. I have a few spaces left on my trips, so if anyone has time, or knows of someone keen, I can hook up a pretty good deal for ’em. Check out www.ridebig.com for dates.

I finish up in Switzerland, and fly straight to Iceland to do a photo shoot and magazine article mission with Andrew Shandro, Sterling Lorence, and Mitchell Scott. I am so excited for this trip, and I know we will absolutely kill it there.

I am really excited about my schedule this summer, and I want to thank everyone for supporting me! I will be keeping everyone posted on my travels, and you can check out my travel stories, photos, and video on my Regular Joe blog on the cog.konaworld.com.

Cheers,
Joe
