Gottcha! I finally passed you! And just in time. School starts this week and I won't have so much time for biking. (Your commute is longer than mine so you'll probably be back in the lead in no time.) But the chase was fun. Ride on!!

Into club cycling and long distance touring in the mid-to-late 70s with the Tidewater Bicycle Association while stationed in Norfolk with the USN. Began cycle commuting in paradise while stationed on a destroyer in Pearl Harbor. After a too long hiatus, I began 5 days a week bicycle commuting in May 2005 and have resumed club riding. I enjoy rides in the 40-100 mile range.

After my 29-year old Falcon 10-speed broke down on my commute, I bought a used hybrid for the commute and errands, and a new LeMond Sarthe for my serious riding.

Past major trips:
1977 - Whitehall NY to Burlington VT and across Lake Champlain.
1978 - Pasadena CA to Yosemite via Mojave Desert and back to Monterey CA.
1979 - Monterey CA to San Diego CA via Hwy 1 for League of American Wheelmen national rally.
2007 - Truckee CA to Lake Tahoe CA to Sacramento CA
2012 - Astoria OR to Bodega Bay CA via Hwy 101 & Hwy 1.

What's with my Bike Journal name, you ask?! I am a retired Captain in the US Navy Reserve.
