I started really cycling in college and co-founded a club at the University of Nevada, Reno. I chaired a bike a thon, chaired the Reno Bike Council. Briefly raced in my 20s. Had my picture on Bike World magazine, etc., etc. I do century rides and other rides sometimes. I cycle to stay in shape and do Fencing also. Cycling and Fencing are lifetime sports activities. I use my cycling to keep me motivated for other things in life. I cannot over express my love of cycling and how it has been an important part of my life.
