Nat Geo essay and ZIDILEADER selection

National Geographic just published an essay I wrote about cycling 1,000 miles to Niagara Falls and back with my young kids.  It was posted in Nat Geo Explorer's Journal by Gregg Treinish and his team at Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation, the group we worked with to document roadkill during the ride.  If you're interested, check it out here.

Also, I was recently selected by the new life action brand and social community ZIDILIFE as a "ZIDILEADER."  "Zidi" is Swahili for "go beyond, become greater, do more."  The goal of ZIDILIFE is to encourage people to take action to create meaningful lives.  That's a cool goal, and I was honored to be selected.
