I have finally discovered that I truly love cycling and bicycles. Like with a passion, my first road bike, bought with paper route $ , a brand spankety new Raleigh Blue Sprite, 62', the 29 mile trek to the bike shop twice a week, or so, for upgrades landed me a job in the shop. I had good training grounds in southwestern PA and developed a longing to go to France, Tour de, that is.
having averaged 7000mi.+/- a summer.Bought a Colagno in 64'and WOW!!!

65' began my Navy/Fleet Marine Force stint for 8 years. Got out 73' and spent alot of years "bummed out,workin like slave labor and YadaYah.

2011, Yup, I had a Heart Attack, DANG!!! However, Cardio-rehab involves lots'a
pedaling, well the YadaYah I mentioned seemed to fade into the fact that I CAN RIDE,AGAIN. WOHOO!!!!

First leg of my tour will begin June 2012 from PA to TX to welcome my son into civilian life from the Corps, 5 tours combat zone.

So here I be and that is me.

Welcome I used to live in SW Pa. You might have actually heard of the sprawling metropolis of 84. I used to speak fluid yinzer, but its been a few years and my knowledge of Steeler football has dropped off.

Now live outside of Fort Worth Texas so if you are through the area, holler
