A Face to the Name

I'm not about to post a topless picture but I'll do a clothed one. I normally won't post pictures of myself, too many stalker out there for a handsom guy like me to worry about... Anyway you may be able to tell by pic but I'm 6'1" 223lbs, the other riders in the club call me the beast or the diesel. Imagine the bashing if I posted this in the roadie forum. Picture taken after a recovery spin on the trainer after work today. Feel free to post your all ages pictures

When we do forum rides, several of the riders will jump on my wheel and call it "The B Train"!..I've done rides with a group of maybe 15 riders and pulled the entire 72 miles.:Thumb:

But if I can get down 15 more pounds, Ill be at this weight. When I ride at this weight, ride partners cal me "The Punisher"!

6'1 220-225 lbs in the picture (immediately after a 62 mile ride in Arizona) Right now I'm at 238 and dropping!

Hey Historian Dude! I know I'm a pretty sexy dude and all but that towpath pic has got to be the best I've seen on this forum so far! That's a classic! I ever there is a "Clyde forum picture of the century" contest, that's got to be the one!

I figure century cause in 100 years, there's gotta be some other sexy dude come along and take the title!

Thank you. That photo means a lot to me. Leaving aside the fact that this was a second attempt to complete the trip, and I almost didn't finish this time thanks to a defective rear wheel, I can't help but reflect that I couldn't walk a city block three years before.

My hiking buddy Dan once asked me what the greatest moment of my life was. There were two; the first was when I completed a century in September 2007. You've seen the second.

And this is me on the Worksman tricycle.

Okay, last time I was one who did post a shirtless picture. Here's a picture from today on a ride in the rain and snow:



I'm on the left. The precipitation hadn't started yet in this picture.

Here's a better picture showing the weather:

Please don't take me for a stalker, but I'm impressed by those quads.

The MTB is a Santa Cruz Superlight. I am riding through Limestone Canyon. The Road bike is a Lemond Zurich (all steel baby) and I'm riding through Red Rock Canyon, Utah. The coastal photo is between Big Sur and Santa Maria in the "Elfin Forest". Beautiful area - great place to ride!
