PERSONAL NOTES & QUOTES: I love (working on) hitting big lines on big trails.. Racing is a way to connect with others that share this passion… and chilling with the folks I meet at the camp site – cooking, eating, drinking, laughing.. these are the best of times… ..and I love showing folks some of the best trails in New England (or just riding them with my dog, Rozzi); I am an RI-NEMBA ride leader for Big River Management Area (8000+ Acres) and Arcadia Management Area (approx. 18,000 acres).. Come on down for a ride.... Let me put together a loop for you… 10-15-20+ miles non-stop flowing single track!
