How did you get into cycling?

I was in 9th grade, me and my friends from my neighborhood got some used road bike from the flea market. We eventually started riding to school and exploring the city. I was hooked on the freedoms cycling had to offer and how new everything felt. I got into bike repairs shortly after from piling up used bikes/parts. 

What is your favorite bike ride?

Night rides where your bike feels as fast as lightning. 

Winter riding: inside, outside or both? 

My winter rides take place indoors these days.

What is something you'd like our community to know about you?

I enjoy collecting historic/vintage fire fighting books and ads. Block printing and searching for old Buffalo postcards take up my free time when I'm not riding or working on bikes.
