Greg Mortenson in Carson City

“To love is to stop comparing.” Someone once wrote.

This particular afternoon, I couldn’t help myself.

“I have nothing in common with Greg Mortenson,” I thought myself after hanging up the phone.

I’d just received a call from the Carson City Library inviting me to present my show “Soulcycler” as an opener for the best-selling author’s upcoming appearance in Carson City.

Humbled by the invitation, I set down the phone and my mind began to whirl.

“Why me?” I thought. “I’m nothing. A nobody. Yes, I had ridden a bicycle around the globe, and lent a hand along the way, but that was the extent of it. I was certainly no Greg Mortenson.”

Welcome

Namaste!~

Welcome to Soulcycler the home of Rick Gunn, writer, photographer, adventurer, speaker, human being. Because my life has expanded in so many ways after returning from my recent 3-year, 25,811-mile bicycle journey around the planet, I felt the strong need to build a website that reflects that expansion.

Beside all the classic photo galleries, round-the-world bicycle tour journals and photos, I’m expanding the new site to include information about my new 90-minute multi-media presentation "Soulcycler." This will include video clips from recent shows, interviews, information on booking, as well as upcoming show dates. Other new things on the site will include a cycling page, cycling-links, gear info, world-cycling route info, maps, workshops, upcoming tours, and cycling friends on the road. Last but not least will be "Rick’s World." a series of the latest news, travel and writing adventures, photos, rants, observations, and other madness from cycling’s foremost cerebral wasteland.

enjoy~!

Rick Gunn
