Brian is a lifelong cyclist and started serious touring at the age of 16 when he completed his 1st 1000 mile solo tour. Brian built up his first custom road touring bike in 1977 and got involved in mountain biking in 1984 with a Ross Mt. Rainier which he still rides.
A long time member of IMBA who attended the 1st National Summit at the Biosphere in Oracle Arizona, Brian is also a Life Member of the Adventure Cycling Association and completed Adventure Cycling’s Leadership Training Course. Using Adventure Cycling’s maps, he has crossed the country coast to coast, border to border and has logged too many other adventures to count.
His stable of bikes include singles, tandems, touring, road, mountain, recumbent, fatbike, geared, single-speed and combinations thereof. He dreams of learning to ride a unicycle someday … and there’s a motorcycle in his life he calls “The Beast” for good reason.
Cars are cages.
Brian’s doctor claims he is “freakishly healthy”, which Brian attributes to a life of cycling as a lifestyle. He is constantly planning his next bike adventure.
A life firmly rooted in biking … Bike Roots.
