Ibegan cycling with my friend, Andrew Penksaw, in 2006, starting on a 34 pound Schwinn mountain bike riding about 10 miles. Shortly after, I saved up and got my first true road bike and rode longer and longer distances with Andrew. We then entered our 1st 75 mile ride, "Tour de Cure", raising money to help find a cure for diabetes. In 2007, with all the lessons that I learned from the thousands of miles that we had cycled, I started RoadBiking.org. My hope was that other bike riders would benefit from the site. It's now a co-effort between Andrew and me to keep RoadBiking.org updated.
