Strava Activities Summary

As often as I can get away from the lab, I like to ride my (road/mountain/Grandma's) bike. I ride rain or shine, hell or highwater -- in the parching heats of sultry Texas, or the blustering cold winds of the Midwest and the Eastern Seaboard (Texas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey Rider here). If you are in my area and would love to tag along on a ride, do not hesitate to shoot me an email. Below is a screenshot of my recent activities summary.
