Cycling has been a very rewarding hobby for me. I have had the privilege of riding my bike on a lot of group rides and competitive races as well. Most are in North Carolina, however, I have also cycled in several other states including Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Arizona, & Maine.
Recently, I actually rode all the way across North Carolina while participating in the 2011 Cycle NC, From the Mountains to the Coast ride. That was a total of 530 miles in 7 days of riding. A few years ago my wife and I rode our road bikes up near Bar Habor, Maine. The Acadia National Park is located about 1 mile outside of Bar Harbor and it was an awesome place to be on a bike. If you ever go there, you have to climb Cadillac Mountain....oh yeah!
For the last 6 years, I have spent a lot of time on a bike. In fact, 4 of them. I completely wore out my first road bike (Scott Speedster), almost wore out road bike #2 (Scott CR1 Team edition), just before getting hit by a car, and recently picked up a 2012 Pinarello Paris. The 4th bike would be my Cervelo Time trial bike. Better known as my salt collecting trainer bike.
Cycling is also rewarding in other ways. We have met some great friends because of cycling. Overall, most people have been very friendly, willing to help new riders learn, schedule rides, etc. Cycling is with out a doubt, a great way to get outdoors, enjoy the weather, enjoy the scenery, and get in great shape while doing so. It's a great social activity and furthermore can be competitive if you so choose.
With that said, please enjoy my cycling web site. Thanks for stopping by.
