My name is Mike Anderson and I've been riding, off and on, since I was a kid in the 50's (yes, I'm old as dirt). I retired from the US Army about 20 years ago and retired, again, from the Federal Technology Service (part of the General Services Administration of the US Government) just last year.
Currently I ride as many days a week as my ability to sneak out of the house allows (seven kids and 13 grand-kids have a tendency to keep you occupied). I have a Rans Stratus XP LWB recumbent and I really like the thing.
I volunteer as a Bike Ranger for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and my patrol route is the Western Maryland Rail Trail (which starts near Ft. Frederick, MD and runs through the town of Hancock then West towards Cumberland) - no pay but great fun. The uniform they give us has bright yellow shirts that stand out for quite a distance -- If you're on the trail and see something that looks like Big Bird coming at you, at speed, give a wave, it's probably me!
