who am I?

I’m 42 and happily married. An average joe who cruises to work every day on his bike—ok, maybe not that average.

I’m a graduate of Maryland Institute, College of Art. In a former life I was an illustrator, then I was a print production designer before I became an IT manager. Now I design webpages and databases. Along the way I’ve become an semi-professional photographer. My hobbies are Cycling, Roasting Coffee, Brewing Espresso, Cooking, and the Outdoors. These pages are journals of my escapades. Others may find them useful if they’re in to the same stuff I am. If not you will find them to be ‘toast’ dry.

I’ve also developed opinions on the subjects of weight loss & nutrition, cameras, and other things I may write about someday.

  1. Hey man, if you want to test the LHT out on some dirt up in PA, we’re doing a ride on the 19th o’ May. Slow people, out eating fig newtons from cloth bar bags, and shooting the shit for 50 miles. check the site for details.

  2. That looks like a lot of fun. I checked out the location, near State College? That is a looong drive. 50 miles on a bike = fun… 160 in a car = not as much. Still I’m tempted, and if the scenery is anything like the photos on your site, I’m even more interested. Don’t make up a spoke card for me yet, but I’ll let you know as the month develops…

  5. I was checking that out and I will definitely give it a plug. As far as contribution goes, I’ll have to make that part of my resolution to get out and explore more… If enough of us get together, it’ll make a nice change of pace from trail books!

    oh, and the email, never thought about it, dave@bikesncoffee.com

  7. Gave up the car years ago and started riding to work. Couldn’t get enough of the freedom a bike brings. Now I and my buddy are riding cross-country — both for the adventure and to raise money to give bikes to the kids of military families. I hope you’ll check out http://www.bikefree.org and support us by spreading the word. Thanks!

  8. As an LHT’er myself (bike and profession) I applaud your efforts. I went “car light” (my wife still owns one, and I use it for errands occasionally) years ago, and love the freedom and self-reliance mostly bicycling everywhere I go brings.

    • I still have a car, but aside from trips out-of-state, it would be hard to keep a charge on the battery and air in the tires. Go most places by bike now and wouldn’t have it any other way…
