2011: This pic is the Kickoff of the Biking season in Omaha. Activate Omaha Ride from the Bob Kerry Bridge downtown to Offutt AFB. It was a brisk 45 degrees that morning! 2008 was a great year for Riding. 2009 will not be as strenious but looks to be a good year. Will not get to do the full week of RAGBRAI but may get to do a few day with my Neice and Ridding buddy Bob Altman.

Pic to the left: Me in the driver's Seat, Johann, Hans, and Chuck on RAGBRAI 2005.

Road 4 Centuries in 1993 starting with the Solvang, Windmill, Wildflower

Did two road rallies with some Awesome Aussies! They road over 1700K in 10 days. The first year they biked from Adelaide to Victory and home again. We road two by two 6-8 riders deep and had the SAG vehicle follow and one support vehicle setting up our meals along the way. My wife drove our Left hand drive Mazda on the left side of the road and had a blast. She thought she had more fun than I did as we had driving rain and winds from the South east at 25-35MPH for many hours. Some cold, rainy headwinds and me on my Mountain bike trying to keep pace with my new found friends on Road bikes. Saw many South Australian communities that most Americans or Europeans seldom if ever take the time to visit. When my Son came to visit he brought my Trek 1200 road bike with him. The second year Bike for Bibles road from Alice Spring to Ayers Rock (Yulara) to Adelaide. We hosted the team in Woomera in 1995 and did the last 485Km (300 miles) from Woomera into Adelaide.
