Living the dream
As a cyclists diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, I try to ride my Fat Bike every weekend and get away at least once a month to somewhere epic. I ride my road and cross bike 2-3 times a week. I have a small bike shop in Riverview, FL where I try to help other cyclists learn about wrenching on their own bikes through free & paid private/public workshops. As a mechanic for the past 20+ years of The Gravity Garage, I specialize in upper-end Mountain, Road and Cyclocross bikes.
In the past 30 years, I have ridden all over the US, from west coast beaches of San Diego, the deserts of Barstow/Joshua Tree in California, the Red Rocks of Nevada, all throughout the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and now the gator filled preserves of Florida. With elevations from Sea Level to the top of Pikes Peak at 14,114’. Rides as short as an hour to overnight bike packing trips. Sand, snow, mud, dirt, rocks, hard pack, asphalt & concrete – my adventures have been awesome and I am blessed with the ability to keep riding even at 52-years-old and all that that brings with it!
This is a few ramblings about some of my journeys!
