The bike has been a huge part of my life since I learned to ride back in the 1970’s. I really got serious about it in the early 90’s, and have raced a lot of disciplines — road, mountain, cyclocross, gravel, BMX, and track. I’ve even taken a course on framebuilding and for awhile I was building custom steel frames (which I’d like to get back to).

These days, I ride for fun, mostly, and do a few races here and there. I daydream about starting a YouTube channel (because the world needs another 50-something white male’s voice, ugh), or opening a bike shop.
