The personal things you want to hear...or not

Hi there! I'm Cameron, and I have a lifelong love affair with cycling. From the moment I first hopped on a bike as a child, I was hooked. The freedom, the speed, and the joy of exploring the world on two wheels captured my heart.

My journey as a cyclist took a more serious turn after high school when I experienced a knee injury. Cycling became not just a recreational activity but a form of recovery and rehabilitation. It was during a summer working on Mackinac Island that I truly immersed myself in the world of cycling. The island's scenic roads and challenging terrain became the perfect backdrop for my cycling adventures.

Upon returning home, I made the decision to invest in a road bike and committed myself to daily rides ranging from 30 to 50 miles. The sense of accomplishment and the sheer joy of exploring new routes kept me motivated and inspired. But I didn't stop there.

I wanted to improve my consistency and efficiency in pedaling, especially for triathlons. That's when I decided to purchase a fixed gear bicycle. The hours spent honing my pedaling technique on that bike paid off when I completed my first century ride one memorable morning before heading to work. The feeling of accomplishment and the satisfaction of pushing my limits were indescribable.

Since then, my passion for cycling has only grown stronger. I've participated in various cycling events, from local community rides to challenging races. Each experience has deepened my appreciation for the physical and mental benefits that cycling offers.

Through this blog, I aim to share my knowledge, experiences, and insights with fellow cyclists like you. Whether you're a beginner looking to start your cycling journey or a seasoned rider seeking new adventures, I hope to inspire, educate, and ignite your passion for the incredible world of cycling.

So, join me as we explore the roads less traveled, conquer new challenges, and celebrate the incredible freedom and joy that cycling brings. Together, let's embrace the cycling lifestyle and discover the transformative power of this beautiful sport.
