1. In the episode of Each Mile, Ira tackles the final leg of Washington, sings karaoke with Hells Angels, crosses a ridiculously long bridge and mocks Lewis and Clark.

  2. On this episode of Each Mile, I cycle from Aberdeen to South Bend, Washington. Along the way, I get excited in one moment and disheartened in the next by Cosmopolis, I pet a lizard, I get freaked out by laser cut wildlife silhouettes and I find peace in a secret treehouse.

  3. My riding legs were getting stronger with each mile, as the terrain grew hillier and more foreign to me. Then in a instance, it all seemed to derail. Poor planning from Sequim to Neah Bay, led me down a dangerous path of logging trucks, unending switchback, torrential rain and infinite distance. I barely made it into town and after my some elk soup I passed out into a deep freeze coma.

    I awoke to a wonderful breakfast and tales spun by my couch surfing host super woman. She forbade me to ever bike down that road again and told me to stay the day in town and bus out. And so I did, learning about the Makah tribe, the people of the land and seeing their history and art at their proud local museum.

    The bus came too soon, and with hugs and a few tears, me and Klalita the velo, were off to forks. Watch to find out what happens to this odd couple (Klalita is definitely Walter Mathau) as they deal with visitor centres, vampires and random acts of gun toting, Nickelback loving kindness!

  4. Each Mile - EP 1 - All the Road is Ahead

    The journey down the coast from Vancouver to Mexico begins. With not a clue in his head, little bike experience and a prove them wrong attitude, I pedal out the door of my sheltered existence, into an over saturated, unknown future. Being pulled over at the border (because the suspicious nature of my journey...a man on his bicycle...must be dangerous!) and oodles of head wind (sounds a lot more fun that it really is), did not deter me from making it to my first destination, Bellingham. Go Pro? Go handheld. Clipless? Lugz. Follow me into unwitting peril.

Follow me and Klalita (my loveable galoot of a bicycle) as I pedal across thoroughfare, no fair, highway, no way, town road, logger road, bike path, gravel path or an invisible path I just make up as I go along. Go Pro, Go handheld. Plan? Spontaneous laughing as I rush down the side of a mountain in the middle of I don't know where. Follow along with me from my doorstep in Vancouver, BC, Canada to the gate of Mexico.
