Bicycle Touring

In 2013, Brian Cray sold all of his possessions and set out on a bicycle tour to the unknown with no real plan other than to head west towards Seattle.  He ended up getting stuck in the Rocky Mountains in Breckenridge, CO and solidified a job within three days, spending the next eight months there for the ski season.  This started his life of travel and now he wanders around between jobs year-after-year, in search of new landscapes and experiences.  What started off as bicycle touring across the USA, has slowly developed into a repertoire of travel methods like hitchhiking and hopping freight trains.  Nothing is too farout.
