About Me

I started biking eons ago.... I rode a lot in the early years but fell out of it for a little while as other outdoor interests eclipsed biking. Over the past few years I've gotten my fire back and try to ride as much as possible. I've been lucky enough to ride in many places around the country from the coast of Oregon, Colorado, Utah, Texas, Alabama, NC, Mass, NH, VT and my home state of Maine.
