35+ years of riding. Switched to recumbents in 2001. After a good 2007 cycling year, I had an accident on my bike in mid December of that year. Broke my hip and femur and took 8 months to recover, although I was able to do a little riding in 2008. I have been riding steadily since recovering from the accident. In 2019 my goal is to average 600 miles per month and ride over 7000 for the year.
