WTF Bikexplorers Summit: August 15-18 2019
WTF Bikexplorers is a movement toward more connection, gender inclusivity, and racial equality within bicycle adventure travel through supporting, celebrating, and connecting communities identifying as Women, Transgender, Femme, Queer, and/or Non-Binary who use their bicycles to explore (albeit the outdoors, themselves, eachother, etc.) We do this by organizing an annual three-day national Summit that brings together 150 voices from across the globe to share skills, cross pollinate ideas, and connect with one another over rides, clinics, storytelling, and campfires. Prior to the summit we organize campaigns to connect our community and fuel the stoke for this movement through the SJ Brooks Scholarship, Grassroots Ride Series, and WTF Bikexplorers Swag.

Ruta Del Jefe Adventure Race: February 21-23, 2020
Ruta del Jefe is a self-supported 125-mile adventure race following dirt roads around the Santa Rita Mountains, the lair of El Jefe, one of only three known jaguars to live in the United States. Following my newly published bikepacking route, The Sky Islands Odyssey (Awarded Best New Weeklong Routes of 2018 by Bikepacking.com), Ruta Del Jefe attempts the challenge of completing the ever-scenic yet epic East Loop in one single day, while also raising awareness for the environmental and political threats affecting the region.
