Occupation: Web Application Developer. RideNet.
Favorite Food: Anything with 1000 calories.
Favorite Ride: St Jean Pied de Port, in the Pyrenees. You start in a small French farming village, cross into Spain and return, climbing three mountain passes along the way. The scenery is amazing. The roads are windy, narrow and you usually get a few shouts of 'bon courage!' from the locals along the way.
Favorite Quote: The ironic thing about training is that it makes you weaker. You only get stronger when you rest. If you never rest, you'll never get any stronger.
Why I Ride: I feel more connected to my world on a bike. Please don't make me get in a car again.
My Commute: Right now I don't have a commute because I work at home. In the past I've worked in Powell, Hilliard and even West Jefferson - now THAT was a commute!
