Q: When and how did you discover cycling?
Q: Has your inspiration to ride changed since then, and what is it now?
A: Enjoying the exploration of new places, the laughter with friends, and the challenge of pushing myself to new limits.
Q: Describe an ideal day on the bike.
A: Coffee to start, a long all-day ride with great friends in a new location (the Alps are awesome), ending the ride at a brewery for some great beer and pizza.
Q: What are some notable trips you’ve done to enjoy cycling?
A: Last year the highlight was riding around Bourg d’Oisans between Alpe d’Huez and the climb to Reynad, what an incredible place. Riding through England in the 1990s was awesome. Lately, local rides through Southern California with friends to Palomar, Palos Verdes, or just to a new location are tough to beat. Especially when you mix in coffee and beer.
Q: You’re a Barnstormer Chapter Leader. What does that entail, and is there anything you hope to help other riders find within the club?

Q: What role does cycling play in your current lifestyle?
