Retiree in Williamsburg, Virginia

Hi, Iím from Williamsburg, Virginia. Recently retired from local government after a 35 year stint, finally getting back to my roots in bicycling. Recently restored my college days 1973 Raleigh Gran Sport, and plan to ride the many great bike routes around Williamsburg, including the Colonial Parkway and Colonial Capital Trail. I had the privelege of knowing and riding with olympic speedskater Jeanne Omelenchuk as a teenager in Detroit growing up in the late Ď60s. Rode with her and husband Georgeís bike club in 1969. Great memories for sure!
