I’m an experienced wheel-builder and have built many wheels for participants in the Transcontinental Race and other bikepacking events. Visit the Ride Far Wheels page if you’re interested in me building a front dynamo wheel or a complete pair of custom wheels for you at a reasonable price.


Unfortunately, the above sources of income yield very minimal amounts, so I’m now including Google Ads on most pages of this site and some other adverts from specific brands and retailers. I hope that this generates some revenue so that I can work at my regular jobs less and devote more time to improving this website. I monitor the content of the adverts, but you can always click on the box in the corner of an ad to give Google direct feedback or Contact Me so that I can block certain advertisers.

Ride Far – The Book

In the future, I hope to turn the site content into a book. People will then be able to read all of the information without seeing any adverts.
