I love cycling. I grew up on two wheels. In fact my first real job was at a local shop near Portland, OR as a mechanic. I raced cross-country mountain bikes for 5 years and loved it. Eventually, due to classic burnout and/or my developing design career, cycling fell by the wayside. I didn't realize how much I loved it till now. After moving from the Pacific Northwest to the East Coast, returning to the West Coast and residing in San Francisco, I'm back in the saddle again, training hard and getting ready for a full season of racing, but most importantly rediscovering the things I loved about it in the first place.
