Home | SF Bay Area Rides | Gear | Long Distance Cycling

    I've ridden a bike all my life, but I started road riding seriously in 1989, when my friends at work started an early morning loop ride. My first "real" bike was a blue Richey that I rode until 1998. Currently I ride a Seven with a Campy Super Recor triple. While I've done a fair amount of long distance cycling (rides over 200 miles), I mostly like to ride near home in the early morning.

    These pages are a collection of notes and links I've found useful in riding.

    Favorite Movie
    Breaking Away: Steve Tesich won an Oscar for this semi-biographical screenplay about four 19-year-olds who don't know what to do after high school. One escapes into a world of Italian bicycling, picking up the lingo, the accent, and a good share of the talent of his heroes.
