Rode around town in my teens and into my 20's though no serious training. In 1991 I took a bike to Europe and rode 5100km from May - Nov, going from England - Greece. After that, I rode little for the next 13 years. I started rebuilding old bikes in 2004, and spent almost as much time in the garage fixing and tuning as I did riding. Travel for work makes regular riding difficult but what's life without a challenge!
