I started riding to lose the weight I had gained when starting my business. I found out I was pretty good at it and started riding in Golden Gate Park on Tuesday and Thursday nights. I started racing with the Los Gatos BRC for five years and then had two children which sidelined me for 6 years. I came back in 2001 and started racing for the Morgan Stanley Cycling Team for the next 12 years where we were a force in Masters racing. I moved on to Brevets, Doubles and a whole lot of tandem riding including some off road adventures. I am on the Board of Directions for the Berkeley Bicycle Club and try and stay involved in cycling by supporting local elite racing teams.
