I cannot remember a time I have not had a bike. I have been riding and journaling since 1997. I began riding mountain bikes/MTB events in August 2004.

Lots of photos and stories can be found at:

I recently took a ride back through the tiny town where I grew up. I had not lived in this house or set foot on the property in over 20 years. I love this photo of my bike against that familiar old tree.

Vibrant blue, aluminum 29er.

This bike was murdered by a primered, TransAm driven by an inconsiderate, impatient driver. I don't know the details of the "why" but I do know the "how". My story is here: http://www.jrmints.com/blog/
