An Accident Can’t Stop A Mission From God

The Bicycling Reverend Editor’s Note: “With every revolution of the wheels… a prayer goes up to Heaven.” This is Reverend Johannes Myors’ mantra as he rides his bicycle.

48 hours in Kauai

Better known for honeymoons and lazy romantic getaways than nonstop 48-hour solo blitzes, Kauai easily proved itself easily capable of handling the latter. Booked at the last minute when an upcoming weekend freed up, I avoided looking at pictures ahead of time; I wanted all 550 square miles to be a surprise. The crowing of… Continue Reading

How to make a travel audiobook

A guide for the complete beginner Well, the first step, as you can see, is to get a cat that walks over your keyboard and thumps his tail on your microphone when you least expect it. (Below is a close up of how he likes to edit my books.) Okay, seriously, I’m not a professional,… Continue Reading

Making of the Monarch Butterfly School Photo

This is another one of my favorite all-time photographs. Unlike the past 3 photographs where I was standing on the roof of the school, this is photographed using a drone.

I can say they are more… Continue Reading

Tom Lais Bicycle Tour Logan Pass

Tom’s Bicycle Tour of Africa

Home is where the bicycle is. Editor’s Note: I’ve met few men who love bicycling as much as Tom. That’s actually an understatement. Tom just thinks and sees the world like a bicyclist. “What if everyone commuted to work on a bicycle…?” “What if they made a bike path here…?” Or, “What if…?” He loves… Continue Reading
