  A Lifetime of Creating GREEN ADVENTURE Projects

Hello Cycling Friends!

I've made a career of creating outdoor adventure sports projects and places to live for people who enjoy an active lifestyle, all with a GREEN mission. After studying forestry at the University of Minnesota and fighting forest fires for the U.S. Forest Service out of Missoula, Montana as a smokejumper for eight summers, I began connecting people to the great outdoors through the same adventure-sports activities that inspired me. All the projects began with a dream and passion to connect people to the great outdoors through recreational-sports activities, and ALL became a reality!

BiosAdventures - The mission of BiosAdventures (nature adventures) is to connect cyclists from around the world to bicycle tour operators who provide GREEN eco-friendly tourism. Bike tour operators worldwide have designed bike tours through the most scenic landscapes of most countries. These scenic landscapes I call BiosCathedrals.

Cycling Tour List - The Cycling Tour List is the fastest place on the Internet to find bike tours available at favorite destinations. It's user-friendly and is the most comprehensive bike tour directory on the Internet. With only 1-2 clicks of the cursor, cyclists can find listings of bike tours provided by tour operators at selected destination. See California Bike Tours for example listing page.

Global Bike Tours Guide - This bicycle tour directory is a new mobile-friendly website to help cyclists quickly find bike tours provided by bicycle tour operators, worldwide. The guide includes the USA, Canada, EuropeAsia, Africa, Oceania, North America, and South America Bike Tour Guides.

Bike Tour Operators Guide - The Bike Tour Operators Guide is the most complete and comprehensive listing of bicycle tour operators in the world. Over 500 bicycle tour operators have designed over 10,000 bike tours through the most scenic landscapes of more than 120 countries.

Cycle America - Cycle America Is one of America's most popular cross-country bicycle tours. The tour is divided into weeklong segments allowing cyclists to cycle across America over a period of summers, or complete the entire trek in one summer. In 1991 over 2800 cyclists participated.

Century Bicycle Tours & Races - I was the founder, tour leader, and race director of 43 century (100 mile, 100 kilometer) bicycle tours and races. A 243-mile long one day RAAM qualifier race across Minnesota became very popular as well as the Jesse James Bike Tour in Northfield, Minnesota. From 200-1300 cyclists usually cycled on most tours and races.

Triathlons & Duathlons
- Several multisport events, which I founded, were the first ever held in Minnesota. The Heart of Lakes Triathlon at Annandale, Minnesota is still held today. The events were popular because of excellent courses, good race management, and well-trained staffs.

Fit-Fest
- The Fit-Fest was a sports festival with 28 different events for recreational athletes to participate in over a 3-day weekend. It was like an Olympics for recreational athletes. It included bicycle tours, races and relays; short and long running races (road and track) and a marathon medley; different swimming races; several multisport events; an obstacle course race; race walking and casual walking events; and the countries first in line-skating races. A fitness decathlon and pentathlon was held for power-sport athletes, which became very popular. In 1987 over 8,600 recreational athletes participated in the Fit-Fest held in Northfield, Minnesota.

Nordheim
- A unique four-season recreational lake home development of 45 handcrafted log homes with direct access to a 17-mile cross-country ski course adjacent to the Chippewa National Forest between Hackensack and Longville, Minnesota. Nordheim (Norwegian for north home) is a one-of-a-kind GREEN development for those who enjoy water-sports, hiking, and cross-country skiing.

Sky Harbor Residential Airpark
- Sky Harbor Airpark is one of America’s largest residential airparks. Sixty homes with attached or unattached hangers have direct access to a 3000' GREEN grass runway. It's located in the rural countryside near Webster, Minnesota, which is located 35 miles south of Minneapolis, Minnesota USA.
