Proud Father: Johnathan signed his first pro contract with Jelly Belly Pro Cycling Team and had an incredible first season. Victoria asked for road bars on her bike and is riding faster and further than ever on my old R3 I just enjoy being able to ride with both of them. One for fun and the other on their easy days. Favorite Ride: One of my favorite places o ride is a 20 mile loop (ride it 3 times or more) on Block Island, which is 13 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. The Island wide speed limit is 25 mph. On the flats & descents we're faster than the locals, taxi's & rental scooters. Johnathan can chase down the scooters on the climbs. It is a rolling to hilly Island shaped like a pork chop, including a 1 mile climb from Old Harbor up to the Airport. They used to have a three day stage race out on the island.

Why I Ride: "When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race." -- H.G. Wells
My Commute: Short fast sprint to work and taking a different longer way home.
The 2013-2014 Cyclocross season is over. I would like to thanks BackRoom Coffee Roasters-Trek for a great season and for the last three years. I look forward to starting a new chapter with the Don Walker Cycling Team for 2014! Let the CX season begin!
