How long have you worked with mechanical things?
Forever! I take apart everything. If there were screws on it, it was coming apart.

Mountain

What’s your favorite ride?
Biking from Seaside Oregon to the Black Hills of South Dakota.

After a long ride, what’s your treat?
After a double-century, I bought nasty ground beef and canned tomatoes at a convenient store and it was the most delicious thing I’ve eaten. When I’m starving, everything tastes great.
