French Teammate Interview of me – On the Tour Divide with Michael Cleveland

Even before I manage to get around to doing my own blog post on the TDR this year, a team mate Romain sent me a number of questions as an interview. Here is the result of that interview. Just click on the link.

On the Tour Divide with Michael Cleveland.

What does one say here. Hmmm. First, I'm a "trailing spouse". Kera, my wife, works hard and keeps us afloat. I work... not nearly as hard and contribute enough to let us have fun. Oh, I also make bags for bikepacking under the name of SpoK Werks I'm an English Teacher (English as a Second Language) here in Germany. It's an amazingly rewarding thing to do. I'd never have believed it until I'd tried it. I also make bikepacking bags under the name SpoK Bags. Just search for us in Flickr. We're adventure nuts (i.e. cycling, travel, life, friends, etc.). We attempt to live each day as fully as we can manage.

  1. Michael, we met at casey and taryn’s weddin. I was acting the “best man” role. congrats on the finish! What an accomplishment. I’d love to read about your adventures and look at any pics you took along the trip. If you post em, I know plenty of state side bikers to come here and read it. regards, Brett

  2. Rock star! Again, hell of an accomplishment there Mike – especially sticking with it. I never thought about the loneliness aspect. I wonder if living abroad helped you keep your head and not DNF, though? All that way to come to the states so you had no choice but to finish, right?

  3. It might have helped. Also, being alone a lot and riding alone, mostly, probably also contributed. Of course, when I set my mind to something, I usually finish it and coming overseas as well as knowing all those people were watching my SPOT gave me a big push.
