I have been "seriously" cycling since the summer of '03, when I started commuting to work for a 4 month work-term on my Trek 820. I then purchased a used Moulden Road bike from a coworker (thanks Dave!) and started riding more and more. Unfortunately, both my Trek 820 and my Custom Moulden road bike were stolen from my garage in mid-November of 2005, and I was bikeless until the end of February 2006 when I purchased a Giant ATX 740 as an "all purpose" machine until I could afford a road bike. In Mid-June 2006, I purchased the beautiful Colnago Classic you see below...I LOVE this bike!

In 2007, I put on more miles than any other year thus far, and also started 'cross racing in the fall--great fun!!

In 2008, I hope to do some road races during the summer, and 'cross races again in the fall/winter. I'd love to step my average speed up a bit more once again, and think it should be possible with a bit of work!

Check out my webpage for more information about me, my cycling, and my canoe tripping!
