The Silver Lining

It's tough to lose your wife/best friend/adventure buddy but being surrounded by so many great people in the mountain biking community has helped me get through it. Thanks to my friends @jeff-lenosky and @briceshirbach for getting me out on the bike after a difficult time. Music: For Sarah by Tourist Used with written permission from William Phillips, Tourist

 This really hit home for me as well. I lost my Mom when i was 15 in 2012 to breast cancer. I had a really hard time coping and still do, but I started mountain biking and it has totally turned my life around and i owe it to the mountain bike community for helping me deal with my pain. Very touching video, thanks for sharing. #f*ckcancer.

 I don't know that kind of loss, but as a married family man, I do fear the possibility. The mountains, mountain biking and snowboarding have always been very therapeutic for me and pulled me out of some dark times. Sorry for your loss.
