I started cycling in 1991 as a means of weight control. That first year I think I rode less than a thousand miles. In 1992 I joined Downriver Cycling Club and started doing group rides with them. This lead to riding tours. I have held different positions in the club, including several years as President. In November of 1993, I decided I wanted to run a marathon. By my first marathon, I was riding 4000-5000 miles a year. I was encouraged by a couple members of DCC to come to LMB's Advocacy Day. Attending Advocacy Day really opened my eyes to another side of cycling. I was elected to the LMB's Board in 1998. I am committed to making cycling better for all the people of the state, as well as in the country. In my tenure on the board we have made progress, both locally and nationally. We need to keep the momentum going! Moving from Downriver to Manchester, my cycling has taken a little hit. But I am still committed to the sport.
