2011- Looking forward to more miles with Brooklynn again this year. Also looking forward to getting in my new Trek Madone 5.3. This is my replacement bike from the one I lost in the fire. Of course i upgraded form the 1500.

2010- I'm looking forward to many bike rides with Brooklynn this year. Pulling a trailer will get me back into shape fast. Also looking forward to a couple of centuries since I was only able to get one in last year.

2009 - Well last year was a great year 3300 miles. I'm going to have a hard time beating that goal any time soon. My wife and I are expecting our first baby this year. Due date June 9. Getting summer miles will be hard with daddy duties. No big rides planned. Nothing concrete. 2000 is still the goal.


2008 - I've been riding since my Dad bribed me with a candy bar when I was learning to ride on two wheels. I haven't stopped in 30 years. I now ride about 2000 miles a year

Road bike
Description:  First real road bike. This bike is currently being restored. As of 1/1/09 I have striped and repainted and decaled the bike. Decals are from Velocal. Very good reproduction decals. Easy to apply. Then I clearcoated bike. I have upgraded to a triple crank(from the 1500) This bike when finished will be ridden very seldom. June '09 restoration complete. Upgraded to brake/shifters from 1500. Shimano 105s. Also I'am using the rims form the 1500. This was possible after spreading the rear stays.

Cyclocross Road bike
Description:  Ifound this bike in a dumpster in '95. After fixing the flats and adjusting the derailler I brought it to our cottage and there it sat for 15 years. I have replaced the rims and tires with Wolber TX Profile rims and Bontrager STXR Cyclocross tires. I have also replaced the derailler and shifter with an '86 Shimmano 600 parts. This brings the bike to a 6 spd. I hope this bike can be a winter beater/commuter bike.
