About Me

  • When it hurts, just pedal faster. I race 'cross here on the East Coast, and I've been hitting as many road races as I possibly can. I got my first BMX bike in 1983 and I haven't stopped riding since. Sometimes I can't decide which is scarier, commuting on my track bike to work in Manhattan or a cyclocross race. I'm always looking for people to ride with in NYC, so drop me a line. Peace to all the New York City messengers, roadies, track heads and BMX'ers. Watch out on your left and ride safe...

  • Setting off an automated speed camera on my road bike and seeing the picture in the NY Post.

  • Getting creamed by a taxi on Madison Avenue while on a training ride on my track bike: 3 broken ribs, a collapsed lung, torn rotator cuff, 66 stitches and a concussion.

  • To have fun everyday. Although racing can be brutal and punishing at times, if you're not having fun somewhere deep down inside than what's the point?

  • Golf. It would seem to be the antithesis of bike racing.

  • Brutal headwinds, people who drive while chatting on their cell phones, drive SUV's so large they can't see a cyclist on their right, wheel swallowing potholes, strangers who yell 'Hey Lance Armstrong' (How unbelievably original and clever!) and cops who give bikers tickets for blowing through red ights.

  • Snicker at the obese, pale skinned smokers I pass by the hundreds on my rides, and keep pedalling so that I do not become one.
