My most memorable experiences; the people I’ve met, places I’ve traveled, jobs, friends, etc., my favorite memories have been connected to bike riding.

I’ve met a lot of people, but it seems that there’s usually a “click” when I find out somebody is a biker.

Me and Gabby hanging at the Gravity Games (I’m on the right)

Thanks to riding I’ve been lucky, and have had opportunities that I’m sure would never have happened in other sports. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have hung out with Gabby Reese if I was, say, going to wrestling practice every day when I was younger. I know I would never have been close enough to see the veins on Telly Savalas’s head if I joined the chess club in high school.
Even though I enjoy “non-bike” stuff, and hang out with “non-bike” people, I always like the bike world a little more than the real world. It’s like living in a bike microcosm, or, bikrocosm.
