I started riding in 1984. I dabbled as a cat4 and Sport racer until life got busy with kids. Came back into cycling around 2011. I gravitated to the mt bike mostly. I had fun with occasional mtb racing and gravel riding. I moved from SoCal back to Arizona after 30 years in CA. Rediscovering road riding - Tucson is great for the road! Mtb community is large and diverse. So many options for riding here! I ride 2 different fatbikes, a hardtail and full suspension race bike and a new trail bike coming this week.
