I rode across the United States from Astoria, Oregon to Portsmouth, New Hampshire in 2004 with America By Bicycle and had a wonderful experience. I ride with the Santa Cruz Cycling Club and try to ride my bike home from San Jose to Santa Cruz as often as my schedule, weather and light allows.

I have a Trek touring bike that I will ride this summer and I have a Serotta road bike.

I ride as often and as many miles as I am able with work interference.

I am a teacher and have the last 2 weeks of June and also July off.
