Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone is enjoying spring.  EH?  I have taken my two weeks off and about three weeks ago I started my bike training for the cycling season.  YES, from about April to August I am a cyclist.  I travel around the country with a bike bag instead of ski bag, and meet up with all of my cycling friends, who I haven’t seen since last summer.  Except for Marshall Opel, Reid Pletcher, and Scot Krankalla who are my buddies in both.

My Spring Break
