What Inspires Bradley Nierenberg?

Why do I love to be outside? There are many reasons. Hiking, biking, camping, skiing, running, and climbing are all ways for me to push boundaries and find out what I am capable of. The wind in your face is enough to right all the wrongs of the day. The sense of accomplishment looking at steep incline or sheer face you just tackled is unlike anything else. The adrenaline of heights and speed is addictive. And knowing you did it with your own strength.. It’s an incomparable feeling.

I’ll Stay Inside if I Have To…

The outdoors is where I’d spend all my time if I could. Mountain biking, hiking, skiing, anything to get my daily dose of adrenaline. But when the snow is blowing so hard I can’t see my car in the driveway, I let mother nature win.

If I can’t make it to the mountains, I might go to the gym, organize my garage, or watch an outdoor movie, staying warm, but living vicariously through the pros.

Here’s a good list of movies to kick off a nasty weather movie marathon when you are wishing you could be outside.

What are your favorite ways to wait out the nasty weather? Or do you just brave the storm and head for the slopes?

New Destinations for Mountain Biking

This article makes me want to plan my next trek to Detroit Lakes, Minnesota to explore their trails. I always love seeing new places, even though Colorado never gets old. Never thought I’d want to leave CO to get my mountain fix.

The article also mentions how mountain biking in Minnesota may bring even more people than downhill winter sports. I love both equally – but it’s pretty cool to see mountain biking catch on as a more popular outdoor activity that everyone old and young can enjoy.

Where are you going for your next outdoor adventure? Where should I go? Suggestions?

Instagram Adventures

Finding other people who share their love for mountains is one of my favorite things. I found this guy here.

He posts incredible views from his hikes and climbs. If this doesn’t make you want to climb a mountain, I don’t know what will.

Check out some of his posts from San Juans, CO and Snowmass Lake, CO  or just scroll through his whole feed to see his adventures and accomplishments here.
Where do you guys find your favorite adventure bloggers? What motivates you to get outside? I can’t wait for the weekend!
