Growing up, I lived 1.8 miles from school. The school bus picked up all children 2 or more miles away. When I started 5th grade, my parents decided I was old enough to go to school by myself. When I complained it was too far to walk, they bought me a bicycle. I’ve been hooked ever since then.
I started serious bicycle riding in 2000, when I rode my bicycle more than 20 miles, didn’t stop once, and didn’t collapse during the whole ride.
When I lived in Sullivan County, NY, I was ‘volunteered’ to be the ride leader of the Sullivan County Wheelmen, and created many safe, interesting rides around and through the county. Ever ridden through 3 states in a single day? Ever come around a corner on a road, and had to avoid hitting a bear cub or adult deer?
When I moved to Rockland County, NY, I joined the Rockland Bicycle Club, created and lead many safe and interesting rides in and around Rockland County. Riding through West Point military school is a lot like riding through Camp Pendleton, except for the Revolutionary War cannons, and scenic views of the Hudson River.
It made sense to me when I moved to Orange County, CA, that I would bring my bicycles with me. Over the last 4 years I rode my way around Orange County, riding by myself, with various other bicycle clubs, and joining the Orange County Wheelmen in 2006. Once again, I was ‘volunteered’ to be a ride leader, and have created several safe, interesting rides in and around Orange County. Have you ridden at least 3 river trails in one day, and past the Queen Mary?
I completed the Road 1 course put on by the League of American Bicyclists in 2008 and completed the LCI certification program from the League of American Bicyclists in 2010.
