Joe’s Great Adventure

We're excited to bring you the first installment of the Joe's Great Adventure project.

This summer, Joe Meiser, the head of our product design and development team, is taking part in the Tour Divide race. It is a hearty journey for sure, that will see him ride from Banff, Alberta, Canada to Antelope Wells, New Mexico, USA.

Joe has been gracious enough to let us share in his upcoming journey. We'll take a look at the event and his preparations, the bike and gear he'll use, and, later in the summer, a closer look at his experience on the trail.

With that, we invite you to join us on Joe's Great Adventure.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mike Riemer

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

Tour Divide is stoked to have Joe mixing it up in the field this year. with nearly 40 racers committed to lining up, it promises to be the most competitive field ever assembled on the divide. there are perhaps 10 different riders who can win it all, Joe included. His humble attitude will take him far. Giddy up! Two weeks till sparks fly.

Good stuff guys.  Thanks for taking the time to talk about your setup.  Meiser, T.I. was just a warm up for this… your biggest, best adventure yet.  When I lived out in Colorado, I definitely had some freaky stuff happen while riding at night, but overall, what I found (and I know you know this) is that if you stay calm, keep your bearings and don’t freak out, 9.5 times out of ten, you’ll get out of most situations relatively unscathed.

Good luck Joe, and thanks again to you both.

Cheers,
MG

Hey, you don’t have to remind me about Joe’s riding talents! That said, I’m sure that the GDR is a sobering beast to stare down.

Mike, and Joe, thanks for doing this. I believe that adventures and bicycles are two things that go together, and really- It is the reason we all ride, I think.

I’ll be watching (and cheering!) from the sidelines, you can count on that!
