click to enlarge
I started biking seriously in 1981 in order to compete in a triathlon because a friend dared me to. After my first triathlon I continued training for and competing in triathlons for 5 more years during which I fell in love with biking. Running seemed to hurt more and more and biking felt better the more miles I did. Biking is my main sport but I also swim, lift weights, and x-country ski in the winter. I also love to canoe, kayak, or raft white water.

I recorded on paper a little over 65,000 miles of rides before joining bikejournal in 2004.:
2002 - 2283 miles
2003 - 3719 miles
2004 - 4498 miles
