Rider Comments:
I enjoyed our ride on 8/15/13 very much. I am jealous of all the trails you have in your area, it makes riding very easy when you never have to deal with motorists. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality in leading our ride. Your hospitality is second only by your wit and charm. It is an honor for me to call you friend.

Recreational rider. Ride a Trek 520 touring bike, a Trek Domane 4.5, and a Klein Aura X. I've been averaging 4000 miles annually in the past few years.
Off the bike 25 Jul 05, due to esophagogastrectomy surgery for esophageal cancer. Re-started, slowly, 3 Sep 05. Reluctantly reset 2005 mileage goal accordingly.
Absolutely convinced that cycling before surgery helped me though the operation and cycling after helped in the recovery.
Cycled over 2000 miles in the 12 months after surgery.
2006 was a recovery year - did pretty well with 3200 miles.
2007 end: 4350 miles for the year. Riding pretty strongly - fully recovered, but with some eating and pain issues. Not getting faster, and at 56 years old probably won't, but can still ride a long way.
July 2008: Made my goal of riding 10,000 mile in the 3 years after surgery. Post-surgical pain is causing some problems.
2008 end: Rode 4004 miles in 2008. Still have eating and pains issues, but all-in-all doing well.
2009 end: Rode 4216 mile in 2009. Still have eating issues and the pain is a little worse.
Ended 2010 with 3550 miles. Feel about the same as last year end.
Ended 2011 with 4071 miles, including the GOBA and an Ohio River to Lake Erie, 2-man tour. Pain issues linger, but are no worse than last year.
2012: 4600 miles, including 2 short loaded tours -the start of Alice and Ben's tour to the Atlantic and a 3 day tour of Ohio State parks. Pain issues the same.
4702 miles in 2013, including some fantastic riding in Nevada, Utah, and Colorado.
5204 miles in 2014, all in Ohio, including the GOBA. Pain is a little worse when I eat.
5600 miles in 2015, including fully loaded touring miles on the GAP and C&O trails.
