2004

Trek Travel Role:

Guide

My Favorite Ride:

my favorite ride is the Gorge de la Nesque in Provence - a stunning road that gradually climbs and winds its way through a beautiful gorge. it is a ride that keeps building in it's "WOW" factor -- until you have said the word so many times, you feel almost silly for it. i try to incorporate this ride into my birthday celebrations whenever i can because even after all these years, i continue to find it so special.

My Rides:

Trek Domane SL7, Trek District, Trek 520, Trek 7.5 FX, a single-speed mutt for the beach roads and an old-school mountain bike.
