Proud Father: Johnathan signed his first pro contract with Jelly Belly Pro Cycling Team. Victoria asked for road bars on her bike and is riding faster and further than ever. I just enjoy being able to ride with both of them. Favorite Ride: One of my favorite rides is a 22 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.
Favorite Quote: "Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride." -- John F. Kennedy
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!
