About the Author:

Robert Hurst is a veteran bicycle messenger and all-around cyclist who has cycled more than 180,000 miles and 18,000 hours in heavy traffic. In this time, he has completed something like 85,000 deliveries. He is a native Coloradan who is just happy to be in one piece after working for more than twelve years as a professional bike messenger in Denver. He celebrates his continued survival by spending time in the mountains, and by riding the world's most excellent trails. Mr. Hurst is also the author of The Art of Cycling, Mountain Biking Colorado's San Juan Mountains and Road Biking Colorado's Front Range (FalconGuides).
