In 2008 I tore my ACL playing basketball and for rehab, I bought a black Specialized Allez Sport 105 and started riding, a lot. This led to some pretty significant life changes, like dropping 50 lbs, triathlons, cyclocross racing, crits, centuries, 1-day STP epics, 1/2 marathons, and eventually getting involved in the local bike community (past president of the local bike club, co-owner of a long-running cycling event, and now TheGravelRiders.
My current quiver consists of a road bike, a cx/gravel bike, a mt. bike and a fat bike.
2019 plans? I picked up a nice pack raft at under 5 lbs for doing some serious bike/fishing runs, so I am looking for partners for that, plus several of the Vicious Cycle events.
