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.

Cool piece.  Thanks so much for putting this together.  I’m taking my Fargo out to DK200 this year for my first longer gravel race; watching this film is informative and inspirational.

Awesome video. Great to get to know Tim a little more. His wife’s empathetic and caring demeanor really shines through. They seem to be really special people.
