I guess my love of bicycles all started when I saw my first Tour de France. Seeing them ride around the entire country for days on end was nothing short of inspirational. I knew at that moment that I wanted to ride a bicycle in a race. I started with a Trek road bike and raced in all the tours I could find in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, and Tucson in Arizona. I began to realize that riding a bike was the absolute best part of my day. I wondered how I could get around Phoenix for work and local shops with only a bicycle. It was then I picked up a book, “How to Live Well without Owning a Car”. I read it cover to cover thinking, it doesn’t seem that bad. So I picked up a beach cruiser, 2012 Classic Steel 3-Speed. I loved riding that bicycle all over town. I started talking with a good friend who was getting a road bike and was planning to go up to some lakes for snorkeling. So I started looking back at a road bicycle, a Trek 1.1. I started to dress it up and added clip in pedals, water bottle cages, and a nice little rack to put some things in. I rode that bike for thousands and thousands of miles. Then in 2015, I rode my Trek 520 from San Francisco to the Mexican border.
Let the adventure begin.
