This blog is my attempt to write down some of the stuff churning around in my head. Most of that has to do with bicycles. Bikes have been a big part of my life since I first started working in bike shops in 1977. I worked in bike shops for ten years, going back to school along the way, and eventually getting a masters degree in agricultural and biosystems engineering. I currently work in engineering in Knoxville, TN. My new job (as of January, 2012) is very demanding but also very rewarding.
I have raced road and cyclocross; I still tour, wander the back roads, and use the bike for transportation. I am a League of American Bicyclists certified instructor (LCI).
