The World of Pashnit-About the Author: Who would build a place like this? An avid rider by the name of Tim Mayhew has spent nearly 20 years riding over 200,000 miles photographing roads and writing hundreds of pages of text about his fascination with California twisties. Pashnit began in 1999 as a small private website about one rider’s Love of the Ride. Word spread through the years and eventually the very word Pashnit (meaing 'passionate') became synonymous with motorcycle travel in California. Tim's text and photographs have gained an audience of over 6.3 million visitors per year (peaking at 30,000 people per day) and has often been called one of the best motorcycling sites on the web.
Feature articles about Tim have appeared in Cycle World Magazine, City Bike, Friction Zone, Motorcycle Tour & Travel and in the debut issue of Road Trip Magazine.
Tim's motorcycle travels have gotten the attention of National Geographic, Rider, Motorcyclist, Motorcycle Tour & Travel, VIA Magazine, American Motorcyclist, City Bike Magazine, BMW North America, Honda Riders Association of America, numerous newspapers and even the cable channel Outdoor Life Network. Tim has appeared on television, done numerous live radio interviews, and public speaking on motorcycle travel for BMW.
