How did you get into bike racing?
At the age of about 49, after my knees had given out from jogging, I tried the bike and loved it. Flirted with the idea of training seriously and racing, but it took me about five years to make that a reality.
What is your favorite ride?
The N2 — a Saturday morning ride out of Rock Creek Park with my buddies from The Bicycle Place — usually to Poolesville and back = 56 miles.
What are your goals for the 2012 season and beyond?
To stay fit and strong so that I am able to ride with cyclists much younger than myself. Also, to return to Bend, Oregon to compete at nationals in September.
