Yonder Journal: Ty Hathaway’s Post 2013 Tour Divide Interview Nov 6, 2013


This is one of my favorite people on the planet. He’s inspired me to remember just one thing about cycling: have fun (or at least look rad). Yonder Journal has just posted an interview with Ty, right after he completed the 2013 Tour Divide.

“I was always tired to a certain degree because any day that you ride a mountain bike one hundred and forty miles you’re going to be tired. And if you wake up and do it again, and again, for twenty-three days in a row, you’re going to be tired all the time. So basically I was tired all the time. I feel great now though.”

It’s a hell of a read, so check it out at Yonder Journal!

  • This quote is such a perfect embodiment of long-distance bike trips:

    “Whenever we could we’d eat a full breakfast, like in a diner. A typical breakfast was a veggie omelet with toast and hash browns, then a full order of French toast (6-8 slices), and that was easy, that was all gone within ten minutes, then maybe after that I’d eat another full breakfast.”
