At 19, Rickey Gates dropped out of college and headed on a road trip to South America. It was a trip that would kick-start a life of adventure and travel. Over a decade later and now a sponsored trail runner – Rickey’s love for the road has not diminished one bit. “On the Road” shares Rickey’s thoughts and philosophy on the life he has chosen as he road trips from Aspen Colorado to San Francisco in search of wild lands and some of the best trails in the USA.
