I have been an avid cyclist since I was a young boy. As a teenager, my best friend and I rode everywhere. I grew up in Bloomington, Indiana and went to many Little 5 races. I was on a team my freshman year and we finished 3rd. I didn't get to ride in the race because I got sick. My biggest lifetime regret is that I never rode in a race. I rode in several century rides when I lived in North Carolina - finished one. That was one of the monumental moments in my life, along with riding across Alligator Alley in South Florida. Got my first mountain bike when I lived in Florida (kind of ironic). I love to ride but don't do it much anymore. I publish and develop websites as well as do some counseling at IU. Started some Mountain Biking sites just so I could get more involved in it again. I have started riding more and plan to increase that as I enter the second half-century of my young life. Look forward to getting to know some of you better. Take care.
