Road Trip: Santa Fe & Taos Visiting Sincere Cycles

IMG_2208

Hey friends,
I’m back in action over here at the Bike Jerks blog and coming at you today with a little bit about my time spent last week in the Santa Fe Taos area.

After leaving All-City I didn’t know what to do with myself but I knew that I sure as heck didn’t want to have nothing to do when Monday rolled around. That would be way too sad. So I packed up and headed toward Bentonville, AR on my way to Stillwater, OK for the Land Run 100 (more on this in another post).

After Stillwater I decided to head over to Santa Fe as I’d never been, and my good friend Bailey Newbrey was just about to open up his new shop, Sincere Cycles.

I have to say that I am becoming quite taken with the desert landscapes. It’s a long time coming as I come from the land of trees and water, but the more time I spend in the desert environments, the more I dig it.

Santa Fe is gorgeous, surrounded by mountains, and the architecture and Mexican / Spanish influence is super rad. I also really like the fact that it’s indigenous history is prominent as that is a topic I’m also quite taken with.

After a few days it was time to get back home, but not before a spirit quest in Carson National Forest. I’m really loving truck camping as I can pick any forest road and drive in confidently and setup camp. It’s terrific.
