History:

click to enlarge
Got back into road biking in July of 2005, after 20 years off, with a Trek 7300. My wife and I bought the Pilots spring of 2006. The Volae was added summer of 2007. Then we got serious about bents in 2009 and added the XP Ti for me, and a Bacchetta CarbonAero 2.0 for Margaret.
In 2011 we took our tandem on the Big Ride Across America, a ride from Seattle, WA to Washington, DC to benefit the American Lung Association.
As of July 2016, we are on a year long tour circumnavigating the lower 48 states.
