History:

click to enlarge
Got my first bike, a Schwinn with 24" wheels, in third grade and have had a bike in my life ever since. In college I used a "Schwinn light weight" 3 speed to get around campus in the snow of Iowa. Went through the motorcycle phase for a few years and then back to the bicycle. Started biking to work in 1972 and doing pannier trips in 1973. Longest self-contained bike camping trip so far is 2355 miles. 2004 trip journals are at http://pedalpusher.crazyguyonabike.com
Presently own four bikes. Lost my logbook from 1972 to 1984, but have logged over 120,000 miles since 1985. Bought a motorcyle in 2005 and my bike riding miles per year have dropped significantly.
