I started riding when I go my first road bike, a Motobecane 10-speed, when I was 7 years old and shortly there after did my first metric century. My wife and I have been riding tandems together for over 25 years. In the past you may have seen us riding with one or more of our four kids on a Santana Cabrio Quad tandem. I don't race, but I do like to ride fast. My fastest century was the 2016 Sun Rise Century, Clarksville, TN, in which I finished in the lead group of 12 guys in 3 hrs and 46 min. I also like to do long rides and typically do more than 10 centuries in a year. In 2016 I completed 19 centuries including several double metric centuries and one double century.
