How did you get into riding bikes?

I had a spurt of bike riding when I was in jr high and high school when my dad came home with some 1970s road bikes for the fam to use, I used to bug the guy our local bike shop on a near daily basis with silly questions all the time.  Fast forward to college when I was too poor to own a car and found an abandoned 5 sizes too big Centurion road bike in an apartment I was moving into and the rest is history.

What bikes do you ride:

2005 Soma Rush fixed gear, 2015 Felt ZW85 Road bike, 2011 Felt Edict Team MTB bike, 2011 Gary Fisher Mamba 29er/winter beater

What is your favorite bike ride?

My favorite bike ride is the trails at Allegripis Park in PA

What winter activities do you participate in?

Skiing, biking, binge Netflix watching

What do you do when not at the bike shop?

I work at a web + software firm as my 9-5, I race road and mountain bikes, in the winters I travel to the Mattamy National Cycling Center in Milton, ON and work on my emerging track star skills, I bake and sew and knit whenever I can also.
