5 Volcanos in 5 Days in Ecuador with Alban Aubert

image002We just completed a cool and exhausting trip to some of the famous Ecuadorian volcanos with Swiss Freerider Alban Aubert and photographer Patrice Schreyer.Our goal was to ride each volcano from between 16000 to 17000 ft, about 5000 meters. The idea was to drive as high as we could with a 4×4 vehicle, then hike to the Refugios/ mountain huts, spend the nights at high altitude and then climb a bit further in the morning before descending into the low lands.

India Adventure to the Mysterious Roop Kund Lake

Hans Rey, Richie Schley, and Joscha Forstreuter traveled to the Indian Himalayas. Their goal: to reach the mysterious Roopkund Lake, a glacial lake in the Uttarakhand region, famous for hundreds of ancient human skeletons at its bottom, and to ride down a sheer endless technical downhill over 3,500 vertical meters on trails that nobody has ever ridden before.

At the end of July 2011 an inconspicuous camper crossed the German Czech border. If you did not notice several dozen colourful stickers covering the back of this RV you would hardly guess that it was driven by a mountain biking legend into the Czech Republic.

When I arrived at LAX airport to start my trip to Paris, where I was supposed to meet the rest of our 20 some people on our team before we continued together to the Cape Verde islands off the west coast of Africa; I realized that I had forgotten my backpack with my passport, money, phone and computer on the porch of my house, 1 hour and 20 minutes away! Help!! ...

Hans Rey and Dave Watson explore the Kingdom of Jordan

By Carmen and Hans Rey Photos by Dean “Blotto” GrayWhen I received a phone call from the producer of the popular TV series, ‘Ride Guide’ asking me if I would like to go with them to Jordan in the Middle East, I was pretty excited. Jordan has been on my “Places to ride” list for a long time. Who wouldn’t want the chance to explore this ancient land as a biking destination? Most people have seen pictures of the sandstone city of Petra, I wanted to do more than see images, I wanted to be there and be in them. With that in mind, I hesitated for, oh, about a second, before I of course, said yes.
