Ride History:

I started riding on June 1st 2006 after having a physical and was shocked by actually knowing my weight and my complete lack of physical activity. While I felt lucky that everything else was in the shockingly good category, color me surprised, I decided that for a person who was in pretty good condition and shape when younger, I needed to do something and quick. I took my bike into Bicycles Etc., met Eric and Sean and they got me on the road to a much improved and healthy life. My first ride was 4.2 miles that took 25 minutes and I felt like I was going to die. My longest ride to date was 78 miles and avg 14-17 mph without issue.

I have really enjoy cycling and can see it being a life long obsession to get in better health and make some new friends.
