History:

click to enlarge
Road cycling since purchasing a 'bent in April '05, and loving it... Switched to three wheels, November 2016. I ride with the Greater Dallas Bicyclists group and RBENTers. Admittedly fair weather commuter, but mostly do 20-50 mile jaunts and like to spread the "bent gospel"...
