Last day of a big journey.  Did a 60 mile round the trip to Lockhart today in 4.5 hours - travelled much faster without all the weight of gear.  It was a nice trip for reflection.  By breaking out of my ordinary Space it allowed for flow states.
The bike trip allowed me the space to turn off the self talk and open to the flow state.  And what otherwise might seem like an epiphany or super natural is actually already part of us and is us being super natural. 
By periodically losing our minds we have a better chance of finding our true selves.

Look at healthy soil, on the right, and tilled soil on the left. Specifically look at the back splash and colour (and amount) of run off.  A great demonstration of Regenerative Agriculture.  Right now in Austin there is a boil water advisory due to the amount of run off from the rain and how the water treatment facility can't handle all the silt and clay.  Makes you think about Regenerative Agriculture a little bit more.

Day 16 - I'm back... Looking forward to all the conversations that will be had, all the co-learning and co-creating that will happen. 
Conscious Brands will be introducing our higher purpose diagnostic tool at the @bcorporation garage tonight, thanks to the support of our friends @mezzanine.co. 
Happy to have my bike to ride around Austin and pick-up a couple simple booth additions. 
Curious that we are here in Austin talking about the future of food when there is a boil water advisory in affect.

Day 15 -  it took me 17 hours by train to travel what it took me 12 days to travel by bike, I like the bike better.  But needed to be in Austin for a conference that starts tomorrow @escabona.  As leaders in the new economy we need to move away from the old predict and control models and be more agile and dynamically steer our organizations toward the goals we layout that are in service to our higher purpose. 
Big shout out to @thebutlerbros for hooking me up with a sweet place to stay.

Day 14-15.  The next part of the journey has begun. 
There is a saying in the World Cafe community, the conversation starts when it starts, the people that showed up were the only ones that could, the conversations that were had were the only ones that could have happened and it is over when it is over.  I feel that these principles have held true throughout my journey over the last few weeks. 
Now a new journey begins.  Looking forward to be in Austin and catching up with friends, colleagues and clients @escabona.  With this year's theme being in diversity, I look forward to bringing the voices from my travels into the conversations and seeing what emerges. 
Big thanks to all!!

Day 14 - Good bye El Paso, and hello to my new friend the wind.  With nearly 900 miles (~1450 kms) under my wheels the wind and I are buddies.  Sometimes you just have accept what is and not resist or try to  change it.  Anicca, the impermanence that this too will change. 
Ps love the bike tune up station @wholefoods

Day 13 - Good Food. As I rolled into El Paso this afternoon I met a couple folks on the bike path who suggested that I ride to a local Mexican restaurant and get a specific  dish.  When I arrived the place was packed so I decided to sit at a picnic table outside.  The gentleman behind me Roberto thought that was a good idea and joined me.  We had amazing conversations some of which centred around food.  When I asked him the good food question he responded by saying that good food is less about the food and more about the people around you sharing the food. "My wife loves pizza, I don't.  But I have pizza with her a couple times a month because I find Joy in watching her eating eat and take in that Joy.  In our culture food holds a different place than in the American diet, we have so much variety and dishes where the gathering and connection is second to the food"
 Thanks Roberto and thanks for paying for my lunch.  #MeasureHigherPurpose

Day 13 - Looks like a sunny ride into Texas. Hoping I won't need my snow pants.

Chilies, Cotton and Pecans for as far as the eyes could see.  I rode most of the day on highway 187 until it got recommended that I leave due to flash flooding.  So back to the interstate...

Day 11 - Good Food.  Ask a couple folks today about what they thought good food was.  Some interesting answers.  One person defined it as healthy and flavourful -  when I probed deeper on the definition of flavourful, simple and elegant came up -  not so much going on with spices that it cancels out the balance of the ingredients.  The next person shared that what we are missing in our fast pace lifestyle is the hearth.  Slowing down and valuing the creation of food from scratch. For example ripping tomatoes by hand to make a nice sauce. 
There seems to be some trends emerging, however I still think that there is a deeper conversation around 'is good food a privilege?'. I will share my thoughts on that tomorrow.

Day 11 - my favourite road sign.  Today was likely my most favourite day.  Rip 120 kms out in 6 hours.  Beautiful scenery, open roads and finished it off with an amazing hot springs soak @riverbendhotsprings.  Likely will go back in the morning for a soak before another 120km day. 
#ourroadtoescabona #MeasureHigherPurpose #escabona #bikepasana #consciousbrands
Day 11 - A great start to the day.  Already have 50 of the 120kms done.  Smooth open roads, no glass and no dogs.  Plus a little tail wind. 
A couple nights ago I stayed with a couple Buddhists and they said I need  to make friends with the wind.  I guess  that worked.

Day 9 - Three videos of deep gratitude, leadership and a couple other soapbox rants. The pondering that happens when you peddle up a big hill

Awesome adventures in Albuquerque today. Staying with some amazing folks I met in Santa Fe  yesterday.  Did some work at a VW inspired Cafe.  Perfect day.  Legs only had to peddle 50kms. So only minor rolling pin treatment needed.

Day 8 - Good food from Mia and Phil. "Made with love, low carbon footprint, sustainable for the region, no chemicals, local and organic"

Good Food conversation - At the blue sky retreat at San Geronimo lodge this morning with A&J
"Good food is local and it is organic.  We love to cook and support good food whenever we can.  We choose organic because of what big Ag misses.  Big Ag can get food right on the macro, ie inputs like nitrogen and phosphorous, etc... but they can get the micro side of things.  We need the microbioms that are in the soil.  We need healthy soil if we want healthy people"

From @bownesian and @ponderosachronicles 
Morning. Some words for bikepassana 
I sat down with my book, Lands of Lost Borders, this morning and came across this passage, that speaks so clearly to what a bicycle tour means to me...perhaps you too: "In restricting the range of directions you can travel, a bike trip offers that rarest, most elusive of things in our frenetic world: clarity of purpose. Your sole responsibility on Earth, as long as your legs last each day, is to breathe, pedal, breathe - and look around". ❤

Day 5 question 'With organics and, right now, plant-based eating having their moment in the spotlight, it can’t be ignored that these lifestyle can be cost prohibitive and exclusive for many people. Is there a way that we can pivot to make these health options more broadly inclusive and less privileged? 
Here is my response Part 1

@mingaskillbuilding some other thoughts came through today wrt your question yesterday. 
#ourroadtoescabona #MeasureHigherPurpose #massslipping #megafood #consciousbrands
Such a whirl wind day. Actually would be more accurate to say that I whirled in the wind all day. Huge summit ascent and was looking forward to ripping down the other side but was instead greeted by wind coming up the other side.  I have started to call this trip a bikepasana. (Bike trip that feels like a 10 day vipasana). But really this trip is like running a business you can plan all you want and then other forces are at play that can shift your plans.  The real strength is in how we deal with the unexpected and how grounded we are in self and purpose.  Remaining equanimos as it is all happening. 
If I am being honest I was hoping someone would stop and pick me up.  But I guess it really is the joourney not the destination

DAY 5 - hopefully today’s journey is bringing me toward warmer and dryer pastures - on route from La Veta, Colorado over to Costilla, New Mexico. #MeasureHigherPurpose #ourroadtoescabona #consciousbrands
Day 4 WARM no. I summited a pass 6200 feet above sea level.  Snow pants and many layers as snow pelleted me.  Good side there was a massive tail wind that kept me flowing.  Likely will make it into New Mexico tomorrow and will be searching out hot springs. 
Loving the questions so far keep them coming.  On food or business you will get 6-8 hours of peddle ponder and 60 seconds of feedback

I would love to hear some feedback on this post.  It has been a full day of insights. (PS- this video does not do justice to the amazing collection of clay and sand wedged between my tire and fenders)

most awesome bike shop. So much helpful support.  The question is “what is good food?". Answer from @judiluvslife quality and taste.  Local yummy food - green chili is legit here

Day two|| After having my pump and container taken away at the airport, today started with a trip to REI then (with improper bag balance) I went to an awesome bike store. On the way from Colorado Springs down to Puablo, I hit a nail on the highway - easy fix. I found a Volkswagen graveyard of recalls and some clay that stuck to my tires and slowed me down - all in all a pretty awesome day.
