People often ask “When is your next event?” or “How’s your training going?”. I often answer “I do not train. I ride my bike?a lot?because I love too! Training sounds like work.” To me this is a lifestyle and it is constantly becoming more that way, especially after putting down the construction tools to become involved with a bike shop. Having grown up in New Jersey I did not discover the mountain lifestyle and cycling until after college, but was?immediately?preparing for a 500km mutlisport event. Well, 18 years later things still have not changed much except I have become somewhat wiser through my?experiences?and have nestled into the little mountain town of Victor, Idaho. During those years I’ve logged many races, everything from cross-country mountain bike to?literally?a cross-the-country time trial. Now-a-days I look to ride for adventure?the longer the better.
