My wife, Tannile, and I live in Mesa, AZ. We have 2 teenage daughters and are active in our local church. I was born in Texas but raised in the southern Missouri Ozarks. As I child I was always on my bike riding everywhere. I completely quit riding when I was around 25 because of my time restraints with my business. At 37 I started riding again and enjoy taking trips where I can take my bike as well. I have competed in The Iron Horse Cycling Classic 3 times and even beat the train twice! My wife and I love to travel and she is getting more interested in cycling also. We look forward to being involved with ChristianCycling and hope to see some ChristianCycling bike trips soon.
