Hi! I'm Reese Ruland, the founder of Old Flowers Off Road. After stumbling into cycling, by way of ultra marathon trail running, in 2014, I've been blown away by how much of an impact this sport, namely the people in the sport, has had on me.
It took me a while to get into cycling. As an ultra runner since my 20th birthday in 2007 (I'm old now...) I was consumed with running in the mountains until I realized that there was a whole new way to experience the outdoors. For me, running has always been a solo activity, something I do to recharge and connect with nature and myself. However, cycling is a hobby that I enjoy as a social activity, an activity that is best shared with others.
Through cycling, I've met some of my closest friends and made some amazing memories. Both of which I'll cherish for the rest of my life. Which is exactly why I've partnered with The Cycle Effect- I want to give back to a community that has given so much to me.
