I had been off the bike for seven years and had not done any serious cycling in 15. My health and cholesterol were a problem. So I returned to the exercise I know best in May 2010. I won't race again; but I'd like to get my speed back and perhaps consider some loaded touring or at least some S24O's. :-)

I also joined a club of ultra-distance riders called "Randonneurs USA" (RUSA) in 2012. Check out my Internet blog at Captain Overpacker.

Road bike
Description:  I discovered randonneuring about eight months after buying my Madone. I knew the Domane was what I really wanted almost as soon as it was introduced! It's very comfortable! This is no "rando bike." As always, I continue to take what I have and stretch its use to beyond anyone's expectations. I've loaded it with electronics, lighting, handlebar/trunk bags, and even fenders, earning me the nickname "Captain Overpacker."
