Eighteen years ago as a way to reduce stress after a period of extreme illnesses, my good friend and prior president of the PBA, Garrett Baldensperger (now living in Montana), persuaded me to buy a used Lotus bicycle from Contes and from there I started what has become one of the most important aspects of my life: road biking. As co-captain of the award winning team Killer Bees, I became very involved, along with my co-captain Elaine Cardwell, with the planning of the annual 150 mile bike ride to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis. In so doing, I have been able to make long-lasting friendships with many of the other team members who help to make my day to day life so much more fun and invigorating. There's nothing like the wind in your back, drafting behind a line of good friends, enjoying the beautiful environment of Hampton Roads, on my new "Seven" Axiom GS. Of course, it could use a better engine. I hope to be able to ride with many of you this year and get to know each and every rider on the team!!
Thanks for joining the team or for supporting the team.
