PERSONAL NOTES & QUOTES:
An X runner, Kirk and Kate Turner’s racing and the Trek Across Maine re-sparked my interest 20 years ago, and I've been re-hooked since. I am very glad to have ridden across the USA Portland, OR to Portland, ME summer of 2018 with the Fuller Center Bike Adventure; supported every 20 miles, sleeping in church basements, rebuilding homes, riding with 20-70 somethings. The 3,890 mile event restored my strength to pre-crash levels. Last year adjusting to a Prostectomy was a challenge. A replacement shoulder this year will improve my riding. Bring it on!!!
