35: Making Adventure Your Business; Derek Loudermilk

Derek Loudermilk was a successful professional cyclist, but retired early to start a new career. After wrapping up a master’s degree in microbiology at Montana State in May 2014, he discovered the Four Hour Work Week and set off to create a cycling coaching business to act as his muse.

Derek set off on a year-long adventure to explore the world and run his business. So far, he has been to 27 countries and all 50 US states, and lived on four continents. He values traveling slowly and really getting to know and participate in a culture.

He currently lives in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia where he surfs, does yoga, meditates, hikes, runs, reads, writes, give talks, coaches, explores, SCUBA dives, and eat lots, in addition to hosting the Art of Adventure podcast!

As someone who has a broad range of interests and multiple career transitions, his goals is to teach others how to learn what they need to know to navigate each new ‘ecosystem’ of life.

For his master’s degree, he discovered a new species of virus in the boiling acid hot springs of Yellowstone National Park that may represent one of the most ancient forms of life.

As a former Pro cyclist and NCAA runner he founded Derek Loudermilk Coaching to help cycling and endurance athletes take their sport practice to the next level and navigate endurance sports culture.
