Duzer TV is a YouTube channel run by 40-something American adventure cyclist Ryan Van Duzer based in Boulder, Colorado on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains of the USA. His videos recount his adventures going back over 10 years in the Americas and beyond. He spoke to The Cycling Europe Podcast about cycling, filmmaking, bears, alcohol, eating termites, his ‘mom’ and even the Muppets! It’s from them that he gets his motto: “I know I drive some people crazy with what seems to be ridiculous optimism, but it has always worked for me.”

Ryan is an impressive guy. I met many like him when I rode the Pacific Coastal route from Vancouver to Mexico just two years ago and, he’s right, it is a truly stunning ride. Amongst the American biking community there is a big wide-open mentality that is bred by the sheer vastness of the landscapes. Thanks for steering us in Ryan’s direction.
Thanks Frank. After speaking to him, I did feel that I need to visit America. Perhaps post-Trump!
I asked my Warmshowers host in LA (who happened to be one of the directors of WS) why I hadn’t met a single Trump supporter the entire length of the west coast, and he said, it’s obvious really:
1. you ride a bike
2. you sleep in a tent
3. you’re on the west coast
4. and, didn’t you know that Warmshowers is a hotbed of socialism?
Andrew, ride the west coast, and you will have a Trump-free ride……
Well hopefully after November’s election he will be just a minor footnote of American history…
Who knew that Will Ferrel was into biking?
Fantastic, just the shot of positivity we need.
Happy Monday everybody.
Ha! Yes, I see what you mean…
