About Me:

Born and bred in and around Cleveland Ohio, I got involved in cycling shortly after high school on a "motified" Huffy Santa Fe.  After installing a rear rack, toe clips, and such to it, I started riding the hills of Northeast Ohio.  Sometimes with weights in the panniers just to add to the fun.

My first real bike was a Trek 1000.  I rode the crap out of that bike.  I ended up riding it cross country in the summer of 1987.  After 31 days of 100+ miles per day, I entered a 25 mile pancake-flat criterium and was dropped like a bad habit and pulled from the race.  I think that it was at that point I realized that I wasn't built for speed.
