What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment?
Riding with my two best friends, my wife and [my dog] Pippa. I’ve done triathlons and cyclocross, but I have the greatest sense of pride and happiness when riding with my family.
What or who inspires you?
My parents. They encouraged me to ride and got me on a bike when I young. The gave me the freedom to explore and the opportunity to develop a healthy habit.
What goals are you chasing this year?
My Tuesday and Wednesday ride every week in the summer with my club. Pippa often gets to join for the Tuesday night ride. Last year my wife and I hosted an adoption day party for Pippa where we collected goodies for a local humane society. I definitely think this will be something we continue every June.
Favorite book and/or podcast for athletes?
I read bicycling.com, bike rumor, and bike radar everyday to stay up on new tech. I’m more into blogs and can probably tell you the weight of every new group set coming out. Nerd alert!
Why do you wear ROAD iD?
If something were to happen, I would like the paramedics to be able to contact my wife and parents to let them know where I am.
Favorite style of ROAD iD?
What’s your #lastline?
It used to say “shut up legs” now it has my insurance number. Not motivational, but very practical.
