I've been riding bikes for a long time in one discipline or another: racing BMX in the 1980s and 1990s, a year as a NYC bike messenger, mountain bikes in Connecticut and Massachusetts, road bikes here and there, and of course the overlapping and in-between times.

One thing has been constant during all of those years (except the road bike) is a lack of gears; most of that was either single speed or fixed gear. 

This next bike adventure chapter is continuing the single speed theme, it's continuing to see how far I can take this.

It's not just single-speed bikes, but the need to record and observe is even more tenacious. I'm not interested in racing (although the Tour Divide and other ultra races have their appeal) or counting grams or watts. I'd rather take a little longer to stop and look around. I want to finish a trip with some stories to tell and some pictures. 

If you want to know more, or go for a ride or just say hi, send me some email.

Or, if you want to see what else I'm doing, take a look at my website.
