Why do you ride?
Because Strava (not). And XTERRA. And lung capacity.
Describe the best day you've had on a bike.
Meaning "best 24 hours spent riding?" At a 24hr race in California, while in the Top 5 (solo), I stopped to warm up at 1:00am. Then slept until 6:00am. Thinking I had fallen to last place overnight, went to the officials to DNF. Was told I was still Top 10. Re-kitted, remounted, and managed a podium (5th).
What was your first bike?
First good bike: 1997 Brodie Rocket w/ Pedalhead stickers – when I was the very first Pedalhead Ambassador. I am that old.
What's your favourite local trail?
"GO" -- North and South directions. Even once my KOMs get taken.
When I'm not riding I'm...
What's your nickname?
Does one’s surname count?
What's your favourite post-ride meal?
Mixed berry & banana, skim milk, and whey protein smoothie blended to milkshake consistency. Or, Pop Tarts.
What's the best advice you've received?
"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." Einstein said that. Not to me directly though.
