Asphalt and Gravel: bikepacking the Pacific Coast Trail


Hello friends:

If you are on this site, then you have heard about the little trip I will be taking in the summer of 2018. On June 10th, I will be flying to Vancouver, British Columbia with my bike and camping gear. For the following month, I will be biking down the Pacific coast until I reach San Diego, California.

I was awarded the opportunity to go on this adventure by Lilly Endowment Inc. through their Teacher Creativity Renewal grant. I hope to return from my trip with a lot of stories, writing, video, and music, which I will compile with the help of my students into a short documentary film. I hope to inspire my students to challenge themselves and pursue the things in life that keep them healthy, happy, and always learning.

This website will serve as a space for me to upload some photos and occasionally keep folks updated on my experience. Eventually, I will go on more trips and share more adventures.

If you love cycling, touring, bikepacking, hiking, or any other sorts of travel adventures, please share your ideas and stories!
