I’ve been riding in the Valley since 2012 when my wife and I moved to Staunton from Chicago. As a rider, I enjoy pretty much anything I can fit in – road, mountain, and (in the fall) some very amateur cyclocross racing. I’m also an avid mechanic and built my own custom steel road frame a few years ago. Since I’m a Staunton resident, I’m excited about helping SVBC’s reach expand into Augusta County; we have lots of riders and interest in creating infrastructure here, and SVBC could be a major asset south of Harrisonburg. I am also a recently certified League of American Bicyclists instructor and am looking forward to planning and teaching classes this summer in association with SVBC’s Education Committee. I love the work that SVBC does for the cycling community in the area and am excited about the opportunity to contribute to that mission.
