I started my career in cycling mechanics the week before my 40th birthday. At 338lbs I knew I needed something different, something had to change. It didn’t take long for me to figure it out, I wanted to ride…I needed to. I pulled an old Peugeot out of my shed and started fixing it up. I gave the local shops the opportunity to help me fix it, and when they declined, I researched on line got the correct tools and got her purring. Fast forward, one year and 100 pounds later, I turned my home garage into a bike shop that I did bicycle repairs out of for my friends and neighbors. I have been wrenching on bikes and helping clients since that day.
