Occupation: Trek Store, Lane Ave. & Echelon-Trek Cycling Club
Favorite Food: Gu's, Clif Bars, Clif Shot Blocks and SportLegs.....oh not what I eat all the time on the bike
Favorite Ride: One of my favorite rides is about 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.
