Since I took up cycling, I’ve been fortunate to ride in many notable places.  Here is a selection of some of my favorites:

Riding my Wilier Gran Turismo at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

One of the unique aspects of cycling is that we share our playing field with the pros.  In 2014, I climbed 3 mountains in the Pyrenees in France and Spain that were on the Tour de France later the same year.
