I love working with my hands. My grandfather was an excellent carpenter and between him and my father, I love to build and work with wood. When not cycling, I'm in my woodshop making sawdust.
Tough call. Have to say my first ride in Asheville in 2012 which was up Elk Mountain onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. My wife and enjoyed it so much we decided to buy a house to retire to.
My wife and I own over a dozen bikes but one of my favorites is my 2012 Trek Madone. This now classic bike was my dream bike for a number of years and when my previous Madone was stolen, the local shop just happened to have the bike I had coveted for years with exactly everything I wanted in my size.
