    Hey everyone!

    I ride both road and mtn, on a trek 1000 and a trek 6700 respectively. I do not compete, I just enjoy riding. Being on a road bike makes me feel like a kid again. It is great!

    I got some training from a coach when I lived in Asheville, which really taught me a lot. I was riding daily at that point.

    I moved to north Georgia. I got engaged, bought a house to renovate, got married, worked a lot. I spent more time on my motorcycle then on my bike. So I fixed that by selling the first house and buying another house to renovate. That didn't work, so I thought I would have a kid.

    Now with a one year old, I am finally working on getting back out on the bike more than a few times a year.

    I am looking to commute a hilly 15 miles to and from work at least a few days a week (for mental peace and solitude, not gas savings).

    Other than that, I am a hardcore tinkerer, I always have a few projects in process. I brew beer, have a garden, I love to cook. I am working on building a brick pizza oven and a smoker (off the patio that I am building in the back yard).
