What started as a way to clear a mind, working on meditation, and connectivity to nature lead to a bike, nothing fancy just a cheap bike used with warped tires and a rusty chain. I started riding through Roanoke Rapids, NC. I found myself enjoying a short circuit through 3 of the surrounding cities. Weldon, Garysburg, Gaston, then back home. Currently residing in the tough steep and inclinded hills of Seattle, Washington. Currently a member of team USA.
