Father of teenage girl, Married to a wonderful woman, deemed as such as she has the patience and fortitude to put up with me.
Cycling to me is more than a sport. It is my path to better health, both physically and mentally. Nothing is better for a bad day than a ride.
I am not a spandex weraing team rider. I like long rides in the country, stop to take allot of pictures and just enjoy the outdoors. Taking the bike with loaded panniers to go camping for a couple of days is the perfect combination to me.
I support safe riding, cycling education and education of automobile drivers. I think visibility is very key to safety and that bright colors are your friend. Ride smart and follow the rules of road and you will be fine.
Ride Safe, Ride Smart but most of all just get ou there and ride!
