I have just recently gotten back into biking in a serious way, since giving it up for most of my adulthood. I started out mountain biking, but mountain bikes and super-flat SE Texas don't mix, so on the road I go. I completed my first metric century in March, 2003 and my first true century on July 20, 2003.

I hope to strengthen my mind, body and spirit, while doing something I love. Cycling is it.
2004 was a bad year, lack of time for cycling and a broken foot kept me off the bike almost the whole year. But, it's 2005 now and I'm back.

2006 is here, but with a slow start. A mountain bike fall injured my ribs pretty badly and I had a bad ride at the Bluebonnet Express with the really bad headwinds. But hey, the season can only get better! Look for me at the finish in Shiner!

The pic is of me at my first ride in 2006; the Bluebonnet Express.

What happened in 2006?!? No idea, but it wasn't riding. Not sure what happened to my motivation, but it's now 2007 and forward from here.

I'll start with the Bluebonnet and hopefully have a great year. See you on the roads!

Wow, it 2009 and the newest young rider has emerged. My son received his first road bike this year and he's loving it. It won't be long before he's leaving me behind. Watch for us on the roads!
