Life at 15 mph
Here’s what you need to know about Ryan van Duzer: he’s always up for an adventure. He lives in Boulder, Colorado, but spends an increasing amount of time on the road living an adventure-filled life at 15 mph. A couple of years ago, Ryan posted to YouTube a loving tribute to his travel-weary 2001 Trek 8000, which he’d ridden home from South America after his Peace Corps service and was finally laying to rest after a catastrophic mechanical.
Long story short, he got our attention, and we’ve happily followed his adventures ever since, occasionally turning to him to put new Trek and Bontrager products through the wringer.
Ryan knows adventure. He’s ridden through jungles, mountains and deserts to some of the most remote places in the world, and also to Burning Man. Recently, he traversed the 1,700-mile network of rough and sandy back roads through Mexico’s Baja Peninsula on his Trek 1120 adventure bike.
Here, he shares some great advice about how to make the most of riding the Baja Divide. Check out these ten tips before starting your own voyage!
