Question: What do aviation, architecture and cycling have in common? Answer: Absolutely nothing. But, that’s where my story begins…

In high school, I had glorious visions of being a fighter pilot in the Air Force. I even joined Civil Air Patrol as a first step towards living out that dream. Unfortunately, less than perfect eyesight crushed that dream almost immediately, forcing me to consider a different path in life. Luckily, I had some serious artistic skills and loved to design things, so I decided to pursue the study of architecture.  In 1991, I graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Architecture with a new dream of becoming the next Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, or Thomas Mayne.  After a dozen years in the profession, though, my path just didn’t seem to be heading towards that "Master Creator of Great Space" moniker I craved.  Another career change seemed inevitable.

Being born in the last year to be considered an 80's baby, I hold a unique position at the Medina shop.  Not only do I remember when MTV had music, but I can also work a computer as well.  Growing up, I always had an interest in all things two-wheeled, mainly sparked by my dad having motorcycles and putting me on dirt bikes at a young age.  Fast forward 20 years and not much has changed. While I still cling to the motorized side of things with a 2005 Yamaha R6, it's safe to say that I have far more bicycles than motorcycles these days.

Greetings! My love and adventure of cycling became apparent when I purchased my first road bike in 1979 (Sears Free Spirit for $99.00), the year I should have been more interested in driving a car around town. That bike carried me on one of the earliest Northeast Ohio MS150 "Pedal to the Point" bike tours in the late 80’s. After slowing down my riding a bit while my boys were little, I got back to the bike adventure by riding on GOBA  (Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure) in 2004. I enlisted Kyle, my then 9 yr old son, to accompany me. He completed 250 miles on that first ride, all on a 20-inch, 5-speed bicycle!  Quite an accomplishment for a 9 year old!  As of 2017, I have ridden in twelve GOBA’s and Kyle has done nine. Participating in rides like GOBA are what brought us both to Century Cycles for our bike necessities.
